Cape Town - Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is back in hospital for treatment of a recurring infection, his family said on Wednesday night.
"He is expected to remain in hospital for a week or two," they said in a statement.
Tutu, 84, admitted himself to hospital. His family said he underwent similar treatment last year.
More information would be shared as it became available, his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe said.
Tutu was treated for a lengthy period last year for an infection.
