KAMPALA, UGANDA: Bishops, Archdeaconries, and priests plus thousands of Ugandan believers in the christian community have condemned the Archbishop Church of Uganda Rt Rev Stephen Kazimba Mugalu for being unprofessional by using the media to solve his predecessor Rtd Rt Rev Stanley Ntagali’s adultery allegations.
According to former provincial secretary for laity Prof. Emmanuel Karooro, it was very wrong for Archbishop Kazimba to suspend Ntagali over adultery allegations.
He says that it is not good to wash ones dirty linen in public adding that a church is sanctuary thus its secrets must be kept tightly.
“Our sister church, the Catholics face similar challenges but they keep them secrets, therefore it was wrong for Archbishop Kazimba’s administration to ex communicate the retired archbishop,” Prof. Karooro noted.
He explained that when an adulterous woman was brought before Jesus whom the church follows, he asked whoever had never done it to stone her but they started leaving secretly one by one until Jesus was left alone with the woman.
Prof. Karooro is a vice chancellor of Ibanda University and he has been the head of laity for West Ankole diocese for over ten years and he says he faced a lot of challenges but handled them amicably.
Yesterday, the province of Church of Uganda led by Stephen Kazimba suspended his predecessor Archbishop Stanley Ntagali over adulterous allegations.
