Archbishop Tutu’s health improving
A statement from the Desmond and Leah Legacy Foundation declares the Arch’s health is improving.
CAPE TOWN - Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has not yet been discharged from hospital despite his family's hopes that he would be home this week.
Tutu is receiving intravenous treatment for an infection.
He has been hospitalised on several occasions since July this year for treatment not related to his long battle with prostate cancer.
A statement from the Desmond and Leah Legacy Foundation declares the Arch's health is improving.
On Thursday, former president FW de Klerk visited Tutu in hospital.
Tutu told him he has been exercising daily and was spending more time sitting in a chair rather than lying in bed.
De Klerk say he was looking forward to seeing the fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate on the dance floor at his 80th birthday party next year.
According to the foundation, Tutu replied by saying he does not feel up to dancing, but would pray for De Klerk on his birthday on the 18 March.
