Priest who was allegedly raped by clergyman says Anglican Church not being fair

Reverend June Dolley-Major says the Anglican Church has not been impartial in its attempts to investigate the priest who allegedly raped her.

The reverend has accused the clergy of covering up her rape ordeal, allegedly at the hands of a fellow priest, back in 2002 at the Grahamstown Seminary.

Last month, Reverend Major went on a hunger strike, outside the home of Archbishop Thabo Makgoba in Bishop’s Court, to push the church to take action.

This week, a group of women also staged a Women’s Day protest outside Makgoba’s residence in support of Reverend June Dolley-Major.
