CAPE TOWN – It’s been a very happy start to the New Year for Desmond Tutu’s family.
The daughter of the Archbishop Emeritus tied the knot earlier this week.
Reverend Mpho Tutu wed Professor Marceline Furth in a private ceremony in the Netherlands.
The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation has confirmed that she married her partner in a small civil ceremony.
