Desmond Tutu is an old friend and I have known him since 1963 when he acted as Curate at my home church St Albans in Golders Green. I babysat for his baby Mpho, now an ordained priest helping her father to run the Tutu Foundation. He and his wife Leah have stayed at our home in Kent and attended our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations - and I attended their 50th wedding anniversary and more recently his 80th birthday party celebrations in Joborg and CapeTown. One of my own roles is as a Patron and Founder Trustee of the Tutu Foundation UK providing help to disaffected communities under the word Ubuntu - we are only human together.
