President Cyril Ramaphosa has invited the Methodist Church to play a watchdog role on the governing ANC and correct the party when it strays.

Ramaphosa gave Methodist church leaders "presidential permission" to tell the ANC when it was out of line and was not fulfilling its mandate of creating a better South Africa for all.

"I give you presidential permission. The Methodist Church should point out the errors that we are making. Don't stand back. We know you will do it out of love," Ramaphosa said.

The president was addressing church leaders and congregants of the church's Port Shepstone Circuit Good Friday celebrations on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast on Friday.

Ramaphosa called for better working relations between the state and the church, and called on the church to pray for the governing party.

Want to be held accountable? Let whistleblowers on corruption have a safe place to come forward and expose it - no matter who is doing it.

Can't even listen to their own "elders" :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

Not that the "elders" are anything to write home about. Maybe the church will do a better job.

The Methodist church leaders should have told him to piss-off as long as the ANC have criminals in their top 6 and on their election list.
