Johannesburg - Minister in the Presidency and former minister of finance Trevor Manuel said being president of SA is not something he will consider.

Manuel was responding to a question at a briefing in Johannesburg organised by the New Age newspaper.

"You never take high office if you value your privacy, which is something you never get back."

Manuel said there were other ways in which to serve the country - "and for 18 years I've had that privilege".

The emphasis had to be on service, he added.

"Besides, I can still walk around most places as I haven't made sufficient enemies," he quipped.
