Tutu addressed an audience at the Artscape Theatre yesterday which hosted a Women's Day event.
In his prayer, Tutu specifically excluded political leaders.
"We're basically not asking you to favour any political party."
Instead he asked for women's issues to be blessed.
"If we could, is to make you is to give a little nudge to the empowerment of women."
Tutu added that political leaders can do more to address violent crimes in communities.
