By Benjamin Flowers: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has expressessed its grief at the death of South African Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 90.

In an official statement issued by the CARICOM Secretariat, the community said that it is “profoundly saddened” by Tutu’s death.

CARICOM paid respect to Tutu’s contribution in the fight against the minority white rule in South Africa which instituted the brutal racist policy known as apartheid, as well as his leadership while on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission during the transition following apartheid’s end.

“Archbishop Tutu, a Nobel Laureate, will be remembered as an indefatigable fighter for human rights, justice, equality and the environment whose unquestioned integrity cements his legacy as a global icon,” CARICOM said. “CARICOM extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Archbishop Tutu and the Government and people of South Africa on the loss of one of its greatest sons.”

Tutu, revered as “South Africa’s Moral Compass,” was a Nobel Prize winner, and was referred to by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa as “…a patriot without equal.”
