CAPE TOWN - Cape Town Mayor Patrica de Lille has expressed her well wishes to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu after he was readmitted to hospital today.

Tutu has gone back for treatment after being at home for three days after undergoing a minor surgery to treat the root cause of a recurring infection.

In a statement from the family, the Archbishop's wife, Leah, says the move was a precaution after his surgical wound had shown signs of the same condition.



De Lille, who visited tutu during his last stay in hospital, has wished the arch a speedy recovery.

"He is in our prayers; we are praying for you Arch, we love you, we know that you are a fighter and that you will get well soon."
