Stanley Ntagali, a retired archbishop of the Anglican Church has been suspended for allegedly sleeping with a married woman.
Reverend Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda wrote a letter on Wednesday 13, accusing the cleric of eating the forbidden fruit with another man’s wife, a claim Ntagali acknowledged.
“This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels. Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked up to him to live the faith he proclaimed,” the letter sent to the Anglican Bishops under the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON).”
“This is not a time for us to gossip. This is a time for repentance; a time for prayer; a time to examine our own sin and failings in humility; and a time to make all our relationships right before God,” Kazimba said.
“No one is above God’s law. We call on all who have fallen shirt of this standard to go before the Lord in prayer and confess your sin, repent of your ways, and make restitution to those you have hurt,” Kazimba added.
Ntagali, 65, the accused archbishop was the 8th Archbishop the Anglican Church of Uganda before handing over to Kazimba on March 1, 2020 after clocking the retirement age.
