Freedom, health and wealth

Desmond Tutu, an Anglican archbishop from South Africa, was in the news this week. He was in Senegal to accept a special award from the Mo Ibrahim Foundation honouring his lifelong commitment to ‘speaking truth to power’.

I want to start by sharing with you three little but powerful words: freedom, health and wealth.

These three words are completely interrelated and, depending on where you are in the world today, one of them will be more important than the other two.

Archbishop Tutu’s mother tongue is Xhosa.
