Reverend June Dolley-Major, confirmed that she will approach the Presidency to initiate a committee to investigate allegations of historical sexual child abuse in churches.
In a video shared on social media, Dolley-Major said she will hand over a memorandum to the Office of the Presidency at Tuynhuys on Wednesday, 6 April.
“I hope that Cyril Ramaphosa will approve a commission to do this investigation because it will open up the door to other religions to come forward as well,” Dolley-Major said.
Dolley-Major, who was allegedly raped by a fellow priest in 2002 at Grahamstown Seminary, went on to say that sexual child abuse does not only happen in South Africa but in other countries as well.
“There are so many men out there that need justice that needs healing, who are too afraid to stand up against these institutions who are so powerful and fight us on every level,” Dolley-Major added.
