[LISTEN] Reflections on the Desmond Tutu Peace Lecture

The eighth annual Desmond Tutu International Peace Lecture took place at the Artscape Theatre on Monday night.

The lecture took place a day after the Archbishop Emeritus celebrated his 87th birthday on Sunday.

It is conceived as an annual opportunity to take stock of issues critical to the sustainability of our species and our planet.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Artscape chief executive Marlene le Roux who is working closely with the Archbishop Emeritus and his wife and the establishment of the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.

She reflected on some of the activities and talks that happened at the lecture.

We have a role to play to our young people who are going to be the next leaders of our society.

Marlene le Roux, Artscape chief executive

How do we as leaders and parliamentarians sit in our benches and not be responsible for serving our constituency?

Marlene le Roux, Artscape chief executive

We can't blame apartheid any longer. We are now leaders and we must lead ethically.

Marlene le Roux, Artscape chief executive

Tutu was admitted to hospital this past week and Le Roux says he was unable to attend the lecture but he is doing well and recovering.
