Archbishop Stanley Ntagali suspended from church duties after cheating on wife with a married woman.
Retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali has been suspended from engaging in priestly duties following his alleged involvement in an extra-marital affair with a married woman.
In reference to a letter dated January 13, 2021, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Rev. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu said that Archbishop Ntagali has been accused of having an affair with another man’s wife.
Kazimba said that Ntagali has set a bad example to all the believers in the Christian community by betraying the Church and it’s marriage vows.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my predecessor, retired Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, has been involved in an extra-marital affair with a married woman, which he has acknowledged; part of Kazimba’s letter sent to the Anglican Bishops under the Global AnglicanFuture Conference (GAFCON) read.
”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 to him to live the faith he proclaimed.”
Kazimba also, said that the Church of Uganda has approximately 13 million members, all of whom have ‘sinned and fallen short of the glory of God but the door is always open for all believers and non-believers to repent.
”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.”
“…I have informed retired Archbishop Ntagali that he is not permitted to function sacramentally, preach or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice,” Kazimba added.
He, however, urged church members more so those who have sinned to always repent and seek forgiveness because God is always willing to forgive.
“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,” the Archbishop urged.
”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.”
Meanwhile, Bishop Ntagali, 65, served as the 8th Archbishop of the Church of Uganda before handing over to Kazimba on March 1, 2020, after clocking the retirement age.
