BRAVE Bob Geldof has returned to his humanitarian work, making his first public appearance since the tragic death of his daughter Peaches last month.
The 62-year-old attended the launch of the Africa Progress Report 2014 in London yesterday.
Still grappling to comprehend the 25-year-old's death, he listened to an address delivered by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, on the subject of inequality in Africa.
Renowned anti-poverty campaigner Geldof was part of a panel of 10 high-profile personalities who contributed to a report by the Africa Progress Panel, chaired by Mr Annan. It advocates "sustainable development'' as a key pathway to progress.
Graca Machel, the widow of the late South African president Nelson Mandela, also contributed to the document.
