While the African National Congress leader was a warm and friendly man, Tutu said he was not the ideal president, The Witness newspaper and SABC radio news quoted him as saying.

"At the present time, I can’t pretend to be looking forward to having him as my president," said Tutu who was speaking at a book launch at the Durban city hall.
He said he hoped the National Prosecuting Authority would decide to continue with Zuma’s fraud and corruption prosecution.
"For his own sake, I hope they are not going to have a political solution. If he is innocent as he has claimed to be, for goodness sake, let it be a court of law that says so," said Tutu.
