Desmond Tutu visits Honolulu

August 4, 2012
The Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) - Nobel Peace Prize laureate Desmond Tutu has arrived in Honolulu.

The retired Anglican Church's archbishop of South Africa addressed the media Thursday at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in downtown Honolulu. Tutu is in Honolulu at the invitation of his friend and the cathedral's dean, the Rev. Walter Brownridge.

On Sunday, Tutu will be the preacher for the cathedral's morning service and lead an interfaith prayer in the afternoon.

In 1994, after the end of apartheid and the election of Nelson Mandela as president, Tutu was appointed to chair a commission to investigate apartheid-era crimes.

He continues to advocate for peace and justice.
