Desmond Mpilo Tutu the 80 year old South African retired Anglican bishop who became synonymous with the apartheid struggle during the 1980s, has released a new biography marking his 80th birthday titled ‘Tutu:Authorized’. Tuto rose to worldwide fame as a tireless activist receiving tributes for world leaders for his inspirational activities. A Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Tuto was regarded as a ‘playful’  individual who traveled the world campaigning to end the South African apartheid rule. FW de Klerk the last leader of the apartheid government is quoted as stating, “I developed tremendous respect for his fearlessness. It wasn’t fearlessness of a wild kind. It was fearlessness anchored in his deep faith in God”. South Africa’s first democratic president Nelson Mandela stated, ”If Desmond gets to heaven and  is denied entry, then none of the rest of us will get in!”
