Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali, a retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, has been suspended from church.
The man was suspended over adultery charges, Uganda Radio Network reported on Tuesday.
Ntagali, 65, was the 8th Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Uganda before handing over to Kazimba on March, 1, 2020 after clocking the retirement age.
According to a letter dated January 13, 2021 from the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Most. Rev. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, the retired Archbishop Ntagali has been accused of involving in an extra-marital affair with a married woman and he (Ntagali) has 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) reads in part.
Kazimba said in the letter that he had informed Ntagali about the suspension and that Ntagali will not be allowed to perform any priestly duties such as preaching, function sacramental or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.
Kazimba however added that the Church of Uganda will not shy away from their commitment to uphold the moral standards of marriage as a lifelong, exclusive union between one man and one woman while condemning adultery as immoral as homosexuality.
