The late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Mpilo Tutu not only spoke out against minority rule in South Africa but also left a footprint all over Africa and beyond.

Stephen Corry, the chief executive officer of Survival International that is an organisation which campaigns for the rights of indigenous people, said in Botswana, Tutu would be remembered for fighting for the Kalahari Bushmen.

"He spoke against the eviction for 'conservation' of Bushman tribes from Botswana's Central Kalahari Game Reserve. They took the government to court and won," he added.
