South Africans Challenged to Fight for Press Freedom

Former Nobel Peace Laureate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, challenges South Africans to mobilise the spirit that made the soccer World Cup work to fight for press freedom

Former Nobel Peace Laureate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, has challenged South Africans to mobilise the spirit that made the soccer World Cup work to fight for press freedom.

Tutu, who is set to retire from public life in October, made the call in an unscripted speech at the Institute for Democracy, Idasa, in Cape Town.

Tutu challenged the opponents of the African National Congress' proposals for media controls to fight back, adding that, “This is your country and it is going to become what you allow it to be."
