GIANTS leaders


Islamabad: 28 December 2021: he world becomes poorer still with the passing of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Now he will hopefully, have Nelson Mandela for company 'up there'. The two icons are seen here against a background that really defined them: Tutu presenting five volumes of the final Truth and Reconciliation Commission report to South Africa's first post-apartheid president and fellow Nobel laureate in Pretoria on October 29, 1998.
Long-time friends, Tutu and Mandela lived for a time on the same street in the South African township of Soweto, making Vilakazi Street the only one in the world to have been resident to two Nobel Peace Prize winners.
