Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League wished Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu well on his 82nd birthday on Monday.
Tutu was born on October 7, 1931.
“We are happy for our grandfather who has always stood in defence of human rights and equality for all. We wish him a happy birthday full of happiness and joy,” spokesman Bandile Masuku said in a statement.
He said the ANCYL would continue being inspired by Tutu's visionary leadership in the fight against apartheid.
The SABC reported that a series of events was planned to celebrate the day.
The Desmond Tutu Foundation and the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds would clean Lagoon Beach near Milnerton, Cape Town; and former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan was expected deliver the annual Desmond Tutu Peace Lecture in Cape Town.
