Future Anglican Church priests and clergymen will need a police clearance certificate before being ordained. The Anglican Church of Southern Africa resolved this at its meeting recently. This in order to curb incidents of sexual abuse and harassment. The church has in recent times been rocked by allegations of sexual abuse of young boys by the clergy. The Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba says the church has also set up an email address to make it easier to report allegations of abuse. The new measures will be enforced from January next year.
