Former archbishop of Uganda in extramarital affair

Former archbishop of Uganda in extramarital affair

The current Anglican archbishop of Uganda, Stephen Kaziimba, has informed his flock that his predecessor, Stanley Ntagali has admitted to an extramarital affair. Ntagali supported the harsh anti-homosexuality law in Uganda.

The chairman (there being no prospect of a woman holding the post) of Gafcon and the Archbishop of ACNA, Foley Beach, has also issued a statement.

From Kaziimba’s statement:

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.

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.

Finally, I want to make it very clear that the Church of Uganda continues to uphold marriage as a lifelong, exclusive union between one man and one woman. Adultery is as immoral as homosexuality and we will not shy away from our commitment to this moral standard.

From Foley’s statement to Gafcon:

As many of you have heard, the Church of Uganda has just shared that their recently retired archbishop, Stanley Ntagali, has admitted to having an affair. Stanley is a brother in Christ with whom I have appreciated working beside in years past, and it grieves me profoundly to hear of this moral failure. It is my prayer before the Lord that he will continue down the path of repentance and that the Lord will comfort all those impacted by this sin.

[david – in future use your first and last names – eds.]
He is not the first and he is not going to be the last. The bible is clear for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The archbishop will be well he knows what it means to repent and make right with God he has led many people to salvation .

David, Bukedea

Very unfortunate, no wonder the Church of Uganda is currently locked up in very ungodly acts. A case in point is Kumi Diocese which is locked in all sorts of turmoil.
