Brigadier-General Mohamed Buba Marwa (retd.), Chairman/Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), has described the late South African Nobel Laureate and Archbishop Emeritus, Desmond Tutu, as a titanic figure of non-violent struggle, human rights and evangelism.
Marwa, who is a former Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, in a statement on Monday following the death of Tutu on Sunday at the age of 90.
According to Marwa, the renowned clergyman would be remembered for his stand against apartheid in his country through non-violent means similar to Mahatma Gandhi’s approach in India.
While commiserating with Tutu’s family, the Christian community, the people and the government of South Africa, Marwa said the world will surely miss the Arch, as Tutu was fondly called, describing him as the last of a kind.
