(BBC) – South Africa’s Archbishop Desmond Tutu is to spend the next two weeks in hospital, according to a family statement.
The Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation said he was on a new course of antibiotics to treat an inflammation.
The 83-year-old Nobel peace laureate “is in good spirits and not in any pain,” the family said.
The first black archbishop of Cape Town played a vocal role opposing white-minority rule in South Africa.
This is his third stay in hospital in recent weeks.
He was previously treated for an infection resulting from his prostate cancer treatment.
