All of your web sites have gone since you left the school. I have "hit" the chairman of the SCA with everything I have found and all the information you have alerted me to. Is there any more up to date news other tham Boulas being arrested that i can use.  A number of the SCA members are asking for more information.ض.   Dd

I never did get to the bottom of all that corruption in Sudan. I got called to court today to fight yet another case against the church. I just cannot do it. I have other battles to fight and maybe even win. It is just so sad that I was never really taken seriously and that Bishop Gwynne had so little of what he wanted for all that he put in. One consolation is that he expected it and would not be so surprised.  As a non Christian I seem to be the most shocked.

Interesting to hear from you, even more so as I didn’t send you that email. If it had been dated 2012 it may have been correct, but certainly not from me recently. 
Investigations were carried out by both the SCA and the Diocese of Bradford, but neither found any “wrong doing” (surprise, surprise). Its all now in the past.

  1. The corruption in the ECS is one of the most disappointing aspects of this case. There were many good Christians connected with school in the past who would be horrified about this. Good luck and keep digging!

  2. Yes, it is very sad that so many who profess to be Christians, show so little regard for the basic tenets of the faith they claim to belong to, and thus tarnish those who are genuine in their commitment. I am sure Bishop Gwynne himself would be horrified at what has happened at his school.
