Former US president, Barack Obama, says late Archbishop Desmond Tutu would be remembered for fighting against injustice in South Africa and elsewhere.

Obama also said that the Nobel Peace laureate was a mentor and a friend who provided moral direction for him and so many others.

It would be recalled that in 2009 while he was the President of the US, Obama presented Tutu with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Meanwhile another former US president and Nobel Peace laureate, Jimmy Carter, issued condolences on the death of the 90-year-old Tutu, describing him as a friend whose ministry exemplified love, freedom and compassion.
