In other news, The city of Cape Town has paid its last respect to the late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who is often associated with the color purple.
Since his death on Sunday, December 26th, 2021, at the age of 90, the legacy of ‘The Arch,’ as he is fondly called, has been illuminating up the country in honor of the father of South Africa’s “rainbow nation” (as he termed it at the dawn of democracy).
Table Mountain, City Hall, and Tutu’s favorite cathedral, St George’s Cathedral, have been lit in purple light since Sunday night to commemorate and honor “Cape Town’s greatest inhabitant and all that he advocated for,” according to the city’s mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis.
In the height of the apartheid era, Desmond Tutu was the city’s first black archbishop, a position he was using to fight out against the racist administration.
“I hope also that the image will be a reminder to the world of the great challenges South Africa has overcome, of the great people who helped us to overcome those challenges, and that by following in the Arch’s example, every one of us can also make a positive difference in the world,” mayor Hill-Lewis said.
