Cardiff welcomes Archbishop Desmond Tutu


Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu is in Wales to meet people trying to improve lives in Africa.

He will talk with NHS staff at Royal Glamorgan Hospital, Llantrisant, developing emergency care in Uganda.

Archbishop Tutu earlier attended an assembly at Cardiff's Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Plasmawr which has ties with groups in Lesotho.

The day will culminate in an event at Valleys Kids at Penygraig, Rhondda, which is involved in a musical project.

The leading anti-apartheid campaigner is visiting Wales as a guest of First Minister Carwyn Jones to recognise the work of the Wales for Africa programme which involves Welsh people and community groups in international development.
