South Africa: Tutu's Cape Town Home Burgled

Cape Town — Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu's Cape Town home has been burgled, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

"[The] incident took place yesterday [Tuesday] between 7pm and 9pm. At this stage we cannot give further details, as the investigation into the matter is still ongoing," Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said.

No arrests had been made.

In August, Tutu's house was broken into while he and his wife Leah were at home sleeping. They were unharmed.
