As reported, The African All Bishops Conference was the recipient of a Trinity Wall Street grant. Archbishop Henry Orombi, Primate of the hosting province, the Church of Uganda, demanded and received an apology from CAPA chairman Ian Ernest.
In that apology, posted on the Church of Uganda website, Ernest wrote, "As agreed we shall post a clarification on the CAPA website as soon as the staff returns to the office in Nairobi because they do not have the passwords here."
The clarification has been posted. It will not please Orombi:
CLARIFICATION FROM CAPA SECRETARIATEmphasis added.
This is to follow up the need for clarification on the grant that CAPA received from Trinity in regard to the All Africa Bishops Conference organized by CAPA and hosted by the Church of Uganda (COU). The Church of Uganda was not happy that it was associated with this grant. This is to certify that the Church of Uganda was not the recipient of this grant. The Church of Uganda because of the ongoing disagreement on the doctrinal issues with the Anglican Communion severed its partnership with TEC and its related organs. CAPA Secretariat respects the position of the Church of Uganda with integrity and it is in this spirit that an apology was made to COU. Within the CAPA family however there are Provinces who have continued to partner with TEC and its related agencies in development programs despite their disapproval of TEC’s actions. The CAPA secretariat has the obligation to work and accompany all the member Provinces. In this regard the grant partly made it possible for those bishops from financially challenged dioceses to travel to the conference.
Further, Ernest's post-conference letter to the CAPA bishops contains none of the Anglican angst of his precessor's rhetoric (his predecessor being Peter Akinola), and focuses on Africa's challenges instead.
