With Desmond Tutu leaving as the Anglican Bishop of Capetown, South Africa, Njongonkulu Ndugane will replace him. He is an outspoken leader against poverty, third-world debt, and HIV/AIDS. In his youth, Ndugane was an anti-apartheid activist who was jailed for three years on Robben Island.

During his imprisonment, Ndugane became religious and entered the priesthood after his release. He then lived in London for a time and became a fellow at King's College. He has published many theological works on the Christian view of human rights.
