Kouga Municipality extended a caring hand to Reverend June Dolley-Major, who arrived in Jeffreys Bay on Wednesday, October 20 as part of her 902km pilgrimage walk from Cape Town to Makhanda. The awareness campaign follows after Dolley-Major successfully appealed against a gag order preventing her from publicly naming the man she says raped her almost 20 years ago at the Grahamstown Seminary in Makhanda. She now encourages other survivors and supporters to join her “in spirit” by making a per km donation to the walk. Pictured are (from left) Kouga Office Administrator, Elvina Felix, Collette Lockett-Scott, Celesthea Pierang, and Manager of the Office of Kouga Executive Mayor and Speaker, Anene Jonck, Sherman Scott, and Reverend June Dolley-Major.
