The Anglican Church in Cape Town is urgently taking steps to address sex abuse cases in the church.

In a statement, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, Reverend Thabo Makgoba, said he has started urgent consultations to address the issue and to “strengthen” procedures which are in place for those who deal with sex abuse cases when they are reported.

His statement comes after “four individuals have either spoken out publicly or contacted my office privately” to report sex abuse in two dioceses, apparently during the 1970s and 1980s.
