DURBAN – Joburgers and others are expected to gather outside the home of former anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu on Wednesday morning for a candle-lighting session in his honor.

The prayer session will be led by the Anglican Church in the Johannesburg area, alongside the city of Johannesburg.

The church on Tuesday opened the doors of its Wanderer Cathedral to members of the public who wish to lay flowers.

This will continue until Thursday.

The streets of Vilakazi are expected to see tributes of all kinds to a life well lived on Wednesday morning.

This is because people have been invited by the City of Johannesburg and the Dean of the Anglican Church in the region for a candlelight prayer session for the late Arch.

On Monday, people stood outside the former Arch House in Soweto with an inscription on the monument about his Nobel Prize, as the reality of his passing emerged.

Some said they would always remember his leadership.
