FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
31 March 2017
The Methodist Church of Southern Africa (MCSA) is outraged but not totally surprised by the decision to reshuffle the cabinet, as announced by President Zuma late Thursday night, the consequences of which are already rocking the economy.
“The recent cabinet reshuffle has left a distasteful and gaping wound in the morale of a wide spectrum of the people of South Africa. In particular, the long speculated targeting of the treasury is a cause for grave concern and deserves the full attention of all citizenry,” said Bishop Zipho Siwa, Presiding Bishop of the MCSA.
“We are disturbed by the fact that competent ministers in the treasury and other ministries have been summarily dismissed while ministers who have been found glaringly incompetent have been retained! “he said.
Therefore, the MCSA calls for national lament and joins the rallying call for prophetic and united action in arresting the damaging consequences of the President’s hasty, ill-advised and unconvincing decision.
It is time for President Zuma to step down or be removed.
