Cape Town – Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu on Friday made a scathing assessment of South Africa’s fall from grace since the euphoria over the end of apartheid 20 years ago.

In a statement to mark the 30th anniversary of winning the Nobel prize for his courageous stand against white minority rule, 83-year-old Tutu condemned government corruption, violence and continuing racism.

“It’s as if we’re in a time warp, and have returned to the past,” he said.

Tutu had been scheduled to attend a Nobel Peace Laureates’ summit in Rome this week, but announced on Tuesday that he had cancelled all travel plans for the rest of the year to battle prostate cancer.
