4:02 pm
the president 0 russ postal lead attributes calling to, to a patriot without equal and the leader of principal and pragmatism. john hall looks back desmond to his life. this is jasmine to, to hearing the news that nelson mandela would soon be released. he was seldom one to contain his feelings. it just triggered me off this to twos responses, head of south africa, the truth and reconciliation commission on hearing details of atrocities committed by both sides. if not to mention, then we'll do the blood from his desmond and pillow too too was born in a mining town outside johannesburg. at a time of strict segregation, things would get much worse. as he grew up to 2 was 17. when the national party came to power in 1948,
4:03 pm
racial inequality became law. apartheid. he wanted to be a doctor, but became a teacher instead witnessing 1st hand the government's policy of depriving black south africans of education, consigning them to servitude. and the protests that followed the like the sharp fil massacre in 1960. ringback 69 people were killed and most of them were short in the best as their running away, protesting against the past. last, i remember as a moment when you realize that black life was cheap, the 22 must have thought he could do more in the church, he joined the clergy eventually obtaining high anglican office as dean of johannesburg and later archbishop of cape town, it propelled him into the public eye as an unflinching moral voice. why our struggle is going to succeed?
4:04 pm
he's lot just because of number. i believe maybe because it is a josh by 984 desmond to to had one global admiration. he was awarded the nobel peace prize. it was the kind of recognition that south africa's anti apartheid movement needed to become a global force for a very, very long time. i. i did hope that the world would, would hear our pretty. and that is why we were to apply sanctions. archbishop desmond tutu was one of the world's foremost human rights campaign. as an active member of the elders in the cause of world peace remembered as much for his unremitting optimism and infectious laugh. when he introduced nelson mandela of south africa's new president in 1994 to 2 recalled that he whispered to god,
4:05 pm
if i die now, it would be almost the perfect moment. someone up there must really have been on our side or waiting for us. when mandela died, many worried that south africa had lost its moral compass. they may now wonder whether it's lost its guiding light. yeah. we have some correspondence on the story . we have julian wolf, life for us in cape town. but 1st let's go to our correspondent family, the miller, whose joining us from so wet. so that's close to johannesburg, which is where it desmond tutu, lives, and, and family them. so talk to us about the significance of so west, so where the archbishop once lived as we're saying and, and what's the mood like today? hey paul, this is val across the street in so where to and it's not only we, the archbishop desmond to, to live, but also nelson mandela, the only street in the world where to nobel laureates. loved. and this is also why the series or such as significant in terms of people who've visited,
4:06 pm
to pay homage to those leaders. and now we're seeing people trickling in laying flowers, speaking to the media just about the loss of that they're experiencing in terms of what we heard. 6 as a guiding light or was a guiding light for many south africans, a people here. and i think especially given the age of the archbishop as well as the significance and the role he played in terms of south africa's transition. while there is a feeling of loss, there is almost a celebration in terms of who this person was and the role they played, especially in their transition. this was somebody who was not scared to say what was needed at whatever the time. even critical of the ruling and see when necessary and grow and really putting forward human rights and issues around racism and inequality. so far me though, you know it's, it's such a broad question, but what will people be remembering him the most by what will his legacy
4:07 pm
b all his legacy really is around some of the messages that he put forward. again, injustices tackling that he had on. i'm not being shy really, to say what is necessary, but also when we speak to people here. and so when they talk about his humanity, how open he was and how he was a people's person. aside from back in terms of his leadership. and i think what is significant for south africans is that it was one of the last remaining voices from a generation of leaders in south africa that they really just don't have any more. i'm following the death of nelson mandela as walter and malta, sulu, and sort of that generation of anti apartheid activists. and those who struggled to bring democracy to south africa. so in terms of his legacy, aside from his work within the church, he's also our was at the forefront of opening an h i v center where people were
4:08 pm
treated were doctors thought guidance. so it was a multi faceted a, but in personality really in terms of his work that he did in south africa. and just really the everlasting message. one of unity in a country that is often very divided his legacy will be his love for all people. i i don't know whether have you come across his rights. he has always said that god is not god of christians. god is god or people. so his main legacy is his love for all gods people. and he believed that every one is created in the image and used to it. it would beautiful image of god. and i've carried it myself personally in my own ministry. yeah. he loved people
4:09 pm
now in a statement from the leah and bisman to, to foundation. they've said that archbishop, to, to was a living in bog met. embodiment of faith in action, speaking boldly against racism, injustice corruption and oppression. and ultimately, i think that may be the final word in terms of what the full march bishop stood for and how it will be remembered by south africans. and also people around the walt. thank you so much from the miller for that update. so that is the scene and so and so are the archbishop wants live less now crossover to cape town and, and bringing gillian wolf so gillian, over in cape town. that is where the archbishop was in fact, the 1st black archbishop of cape town. so tell us what you're seeing, where you are. that's correct. the 1st black archbishop of cape town and also the archbishop of this cathedral standing behind me. it's called saint george's cathedral. and that is where he served many years as archbishop. it's also
4:10 pm
quite a significant cathedral in the role that it played in the fight against apartheid. the reason being that it opened its doors to people of all color during that era. now those people of color the rainbow nation that desmond tutu so so finally put it . he used his high profile po, position as archbishop, all the anglican church to highlight the plight of the black south africans, not only to the people of south africa, but also abroad, and really fight and put a name to the injustices that they, that they felt they he is known as the nation's conscience, who never stop fighting for the rainbow nation. and is that exactly that he will be remembered for here today? so what tributes. or have you heard from the people of south africa about this last so we took a look, we took a walk just earlier and we saw a lot of the triplets checking in for flowers and notes and just people on the streets thing about speaking about the loss, but not only that,
4:11 pm
we're hearing it globally and also from larger figures here as well. so the foundation, obviously of desmond to, to release the statement today of his passing and that they spoke about what a loss the entire world would feel with the passing of desmond to, to they mentioned the world last one of the greatest moral giants of our age and as to meet us eloquently said, the embodiment of faith in action seeking against corruption and oppression. not just over here, but all over the world. i spoke earlier today with the chief executive, all the nelson mandela foundation. of course, those 2 freedom fighters worked closely and were really good friends, nelson mandela, passing away this month, 8 years prior prior to today. and he spoke slow, a little talk spoke about the incredible loss that the nelson mandela foundation feels all of this as well. he spoke fondly about the work that they all together on the truth and reconciliation commission. calling that work
4:12 pm
a privilege he spoke about the law being a measurable force that the africans, but also the rest of the world. there's also statement from the south for president remote around the pose, and also saying that he was a patriot without equal giving meaning to the insight that faith without work is dead. now we can expect to hear a lot more from the people of south africa, also as the rest of the world wakes up. and it is sheer, this church, saint george's cathedral, where we can expect that some of the services, the memorials, and perhaps some of the funeral will be held in memory and, and on or off archbishop just the, to, to in the coming days. thank you so much. julian wolf reporting from now the south african writer john alan 1st met the late archbishop during the apartheid era. and the 2 men became close friends on collaborators. one of the people who knew desmond to, to best. she shared his memories with al jazeera and john allen. i met
4:13 pm
this one to 2 as a reporter. nearly 40 years ago. i went on later to become his chris secretary. and i've since written a bug raphielle, his help him co rabble rouser for peace. what really drove him to public prominence was his absolutely uncompromising, angry outspokenness against apartheid. and at time when most black so africans, especially lexical africans depended as the people he did for the jobs on white employers. couldn't voice the feelings to, to voice the feelings for them? well i do not know. 7 why in this country is great. he expressed people's anger the killing of school children. but at the same time, he did this in such a compassionate and powerful way that he,
4:14 pm
that he calmed very angry and contested and over all the situation clearly unfinished business. for him, it has been twofold. the one is the enormous disparities the, the obscene disparities in this country and wealth which hostile odd, long, racial lines. i think the 2nd unfinished business would be the failure of whiteside african, not all the many to actually take the hand that was offered by symbolically nelson mandela that also to to plenty morehead on the algebra and is our including flight cancellations, travel chaos, and the strain on hospitals populated on covered 19 across europe. the challenges east africa faith this year and whether there is the political will

4:17 pm
you know, operate to kill anybody that it wants because it will not be held accountable by military command. there is no brakes on the car here and thousands more. refugees have now fled into thailand. in the past 2 days. this is a growing humanitarian crisis. the thailand doesn't want in the past, refugees have been pushed back into man, mom. when ty authorities deem the situation to be safe. that now looks like a policy that will be difficult to justify tony ching al jazeera. there have been emotional scenes in northern iraq capture. the bodies of 16 migrants were returned from france. family members gathered at airports, received their remains, the victims round, and the english channel. last month they were trying to reach britain more than one head is in baghdad. and he's been speaking to relatives of the victim. each one of them has their own histories. they have women and children among them. they have

according to the palestinian red crescent. is really forces fire. it's your gas live ammunition on rubber coated steel, bullets tensions, and escalating the area since and is really settler was shot dead by 2 palestinians on december 16th, hundreds of settlers attacked the town and the occupied west bank earlier this week . harry faucet has the latest on the situation in boca, its been tense for a few days and very violent on some of those days. and there was more violence overnights into last night. and the situation this morning is somewhat com. or as you can see that behind the remnants of the classes that they were between villages and israeli soldiers during the hours of night. substantial numbers of injury. 7 injured by live fire, and dozens more by rubber coated steel bullets and talking about the kind of gas that was used as well. being particularly toxic and unpleasant. all of this coming
4:20 pm
as another group of settlers were trying to get to the nearby, withdrawn from supposedly outposts of commerce, which is a short walk away from here. that is an area that was supposed to be disengaged from in 2005, but has been operating as a shiver or religious school with tacit approval and support by the israeli military ever since. and it has been a consistent issue of contention between nearby settlers and the villages here over recent years. but in recent days it's been particularly heightened that because of a killing, a shooting dead oven is ready. settler at the entrance to that outpost about 10 days ago as well as that on saturday there was a shooting at the checkpoint nobliss of cora against an israeli military post. no injuries and not ando is the death of an elderly palestinian woman who has run over by an israeli vehicle as well. so it remains an extremely sort of 10 set
4:21 pm
of circumstances. 2 days of mourning had been declared and working a faso after gunman ambushed a government backed militia killing at least 41 members. it happened in the northern maroon province earlier this week. the government is facing increasing criticism of its handling of the years long security crisis in the desert region, rebel fighters and are in bandits have killed thousands of people in the hell. at least 8 people had been killed in a suicide bomb, attacking the democratic republic of congo. the government says the attackers targeted a popular restaurant in the city of bending in the east. no group has claimed responsibility. well as part of for your series are in the fear series, that is looking at the recent events and the year ahead in different regions of the world. i'll just a mock and what takes a look at some don samaya. and if you, if you protest is on the streets of su, don's capital cartoon in the morning and the military rule lane,
4:22 pm
and we have demands that include any military rule and a civilian government with competent capabilities. that's why we're out on the straits. the transitional government was formed after protests and did the 30 year rule of omar albus year in april 2019. but in october to don's army, overthrew that transitional government dashing demonstrates his hopes of democracy only so much and do. you should treat them both changing of god is very important. i mean symbolic, but the hard grasp of building a democratic cultural audience, secure warranties that do not believe in unity, not having a judiciary that can do it without any not having a legislator free praise. i think that is a very low sure. in the conflict in neighboring ethiopia,
4:23 pm
all sides have been accused of mass rapes and killings of civilians. both government troops and rebels have make gains in recent month and then lost them again. the war started as a result of mistrust and unfortunately war actually worse than start mistrust and it creates its own grievances. but just like it started, i think even today, regardless of the shift in power balance in the butterfield from time to time, the conflict remains an effective tell met, which necessitates a political solution. unfortunately, both sides seem to be focused on the righteousness of their cause until we shift from this mentality, the country is likely to remain in war. they bring somali has been inching towards in direct elections that have been repeatedly delayed which lead to violence in the capital market tissue in february, selection of representatives by elders is due to happen in the coming weeks. but armed opposition groups in mogadishu say the whole process is already rigged. if
4:24 pm
the manipulation bad has happened to date continues during the process than i think you have a very significant risk of conflict already. val position has been quite opposed to what happened and they've demanded some sort of recheck on this process, but it doesn't seem like that's been heated. and so if it does continue this way, then i think where we're at a very risky situation. the conflict between somalia is western backed government and the armed group al sure. bob has dragged on. some analysts say the entire region is caught in a bigger geopolitical shift. the horn of africa is in, in crisis. and the middle east and gulf countries seem to have gone to an improvised reactive way of engaging with the crises in the horn. and in all of this, we really don't see the kind of influence from the european union, the u. k. or the united states that we,
