Archbishop Emeritus Tutu was readmitted to the hospital on Tuesday

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was re-admitted into a Cape Town hospital a week after he was discharged. The 83 year old Archbishop has been expressing continuous discomfort since his discharge last Tuesday.

In a statement released by the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, his daughter, Reverend Canon Tutu, said that this recent hospitalization is not related to the treatments he has had for cancer.

Ms. Tutu said, "His doctors considered it prudent for him to return to hospital for observation. He'll have a few days of bed-rest while his medical dream team brings the situation under control and determines the next course of action, if any. He will stay in hospital until the weekend."
