Mary Robinson warns Tutu to put phone away

When Former Archbishop Desmond Tutu was caught on camera looking at his phone, our own Mary Robinson was at hand to tell him it might be a good idea to put the gadget away.

The Former President of Ireland was sitting beside Tutu at Nelson Mandela's memorial service in Soweto when Ms Robinson seemed to have noticed Tutu on his phone, before discreetly telling him the camera was on him.

Ms Robinson is in The Elders group, where Tutu holds an honorary position. The Elders, brought together by Mandela in 2007, is an independent group of global leaders who work together for peace and human rights.
