Eighty-three-year-old Archbishop Desmond Tutu was hospitalized Monday evening in Johannesburg, South Africa for an “inflammation,” his daughter said, according to CNN.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner, who has struggled with health problems for years, is expected to remain hospitalized for at least 24 hours, writes the news outlet.
Tutu’s daughter, Canon Mpho Tutu, didn’t elaborate on the kind of inflammation but said it was unrelated to the infection that sent him to the hospital last month.
In recent weeks, Tutu has struggled with a persistent infection with trips in and out of hospital.
“He is 83, not 38,” his daughter said. “So bouncing back from an illness is not quite as easy as it once was.”
We wish the Archbishop a speedy recovery.
