Tutu buries the hatchet with Botha
Tutu extended his heart felt congratulations to former state president PW Botha on his 90th birthday. Tutu gave his well known chuckle and exclaimed "Happy birthday! God bless him!" when he was told of Botha’s latest milestone. Asked whether his feelings for Botha, who once described Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission as a circus, had changed over the years, Tutu said laughingly that Botha was an old man now and that he would mellow with age.
