A big bummed woman (in Tamale Mirundi’s voice) has been revealed as the cause of his suspension from the Church of Uganda.
Retired Archbishop Stanley Ntagali’s secret lover is a wife of a Reverand based in Kabale in South Western Uganda, it has emerged.
Earlier today, it emerged that retired Archbishop of Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali had been suspended from performing priestly duties after getting involved in an extra-marital affair with a married woman.
An entertainment website Xclusive UG, has unearthed the insanely beautiful woman is legally married to the reverand.
However a few years ago, her and the Reverand husband’s marriage hit the rocks and the two separated, although never divorced.
The divorce case is in court in Mbarara.
The separation was a result of the extra marital affair with Ntagali, a source told us.
But interestingly, the said Reverand husband snatched the woman from another man, the father of her two children.
In a statement, reigning archbishop Steven Kazimba noted that Ntagali betrayed the Office of Archbishop, his ordination vows, and the moral commitments he championed.
“The Church of Uganda has approximately 13 million members, all of whom have ‘sinned and
fallen short of the glory of God,’ as the Bible says in Romans 3.23. At the same time, the Church holds its leaders more accountable to the same standards we are all called to uphold.”
He reveals that he has informed Ntagali that he is not permitted to function sacramentally, preach, or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.
Kaziimba assured the Church that they are committed to transparency as well as pastoral care for those who have been affected by this situation.
“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. Please pray for the spouses in both relationships, for repentance and healing in those who have committed adultery, and for justice and forgiveness to flow throughout our land.” said Kaziimba
The Archbishop said that Church of Uganda continues to uphold marriage as a lifelong, exclusive union between one man and one woman and that adultery is as immoral as homosexuality and that they will not shy away from their commitment to this moral standard.
Kaziimba further warned that if there are any church structures that have enabled such behaviour to be covered up, they are committed to identifying them and repenting of systems that protect abusers and harm victims.
“No one is above God’s law. We call on all who have fallen short 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,” Kaziimba advises.
Ntagali, 65, served as 8th Archbishop of the Church of Uganda and handed over office to Kaziimba on March 1, 2020 after clocking the retirement age.
While serving as Archbishop, Ntagali was also the Bishop of Kampala and earlier served as Bishop of Masindi-Kitara Diocese from 2004 to 2012.
