Tributes are pouring in for former former United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, who died in a hospital in Bern, Switzerland on Saturday.

The Elders, an elite group of former leaders founded by former South African President Nelson Mandela, said they were “shocked and deeply saddened” by the death of their colleague and chair Kofi Annan at age 80 after a short illness.

In a statement, The Elders described the former UN secretary-general and Nobel Peace Prize winner as “a voice of great authority and wisdom in public and private.”

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said, “In many ways, Kofi Annan was the United Nations. He rose through the ranks to lead the organisation into the new millennium with matchless dignity and determination.”
