House of Bishops condemns Ntagali over adultery

The House of Bishops, an Umbrella body for the Anglican Church Bishops has also come out to condemn the acts of adultery in which retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali was involved recently.

The Bishops said Ntagali committed a sin but distanced him from the church saying he did it in his individual capacity in a meeting held on Friday at Lweza.

Part of the statement released to the public, read, “Retired Archbishop Stanley Ntagali committed the sin of adultery which he has admitted in a statement he wrote to the House of Bishops.”

“The House condemned the Act and acknowledged it as a sin of an individual in the person of Bishop Stanley Ntagali. The Church of Christ remains healthy and spotless.”

Many members of the public have come out to condemn Archbishop Stephen Kaziimba for not having let the scandal be solved without making it public, however on Friday, the Bishops decided to uphold Kaziimba’s earlier statement in which he also condemned his predecessor, Ntagali.

The House of Bishops insisted that Kaziimba was only implementing a decision that had previously been agreed upon by the members of the group.

“The House resolved that Bishop Stanley Ntagali be handled in accordance with the Canons of the Church of Uganda. The House appointed a team to minister to the respective parties and their family members,” the statement further states.

Archbishop Kaziimba early this month suspended Ntagali from carrying out priestly duties for being involved in a love affair with a married woman.

In a letter January dated 13, 2021, Kaziimba accused his predecessor of sinning and falling short of the glory of God contrary to the Biblical teachings.

“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.”
