Johannesburg, South Africa - Anglicans have joined Catholics in criticizing the South African president's sexual misconduct.
In a statement Friday, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa said President Jacob Zuma's actions "highlight the way women more widely face exploitation and abuse."
Thursday, the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference said that while Zuma has expressed regret over an affair that resulted in a daughter born in October, he has not shown remorse for adultery.
The Anglicans also are calling on southern Africa's leaders to curb greed and do more to fight poverty and corruption and support democracy.
The Anglicans say the faithful are wondering "who they can respect and look up to as role models in the political leadership of our nations."
