The former Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Rt. Rev. Stanley Ntagali has been dragged to Court for Adultery, days after publicly confessing to having slept with a married woman.

In an intention to sue dated 26th April 2021 and signed by Lawyer Erasmus Nabimanya, Reverend Christopher Tugumehabwe through his lawyers Bikangiso & Company Advocates accuses Ntagali of advising Tukamuhabwa to divorce citing cruelty.

Nabimanya says that his client has video and audio evidence of Ntagali admitting and apologizing through the media to have committed the offense of adultery with  Judith Tukamuhabwa. The lawyer says that Ntagali’s sinful conduct caused Tugumehabwe’s loss of dignity, stress, trauma embarrassment, and privacy. 

“Your unbecoming, sinful, and unlawful conducts have occasioned on our client general damages to wit – loss of dignity, marriage breakdown, stress, trauma, embarrassment, loss of privacy, loss of his job as a lecturer at Bishop Bahram University College, and minimal chances of rising in the clergy ranks.,” adds the letter of intent to sue

The former Archbishop has since been given 14 days within which to remit Shs500m to Tugumehabwe as compensation for the damages, and Shs30m as their legal fees or else prepare to face them in court.

They also want the Archbishop to apologize to the Reverend.

“Your unbecoming, sinful and unlawful conducts have occasioned our client general damages to wit- loss of dignity, marriage break down, stress, trauma, embarrassment, loss of privacy… and minimal chances to rise in the clergy ranks,” they asserted.

“Should you fail to comply with the above demands made therein with in a period of 14 days from the date of receipt of this notice, we have been given “a green Iight” by our client to drag you to court at your own cost, detriment, further embarrassment and peril.”

Images and videos of Judith Tukamuhabwa, the woman with whom the Archbishop committed the sin and sired a child made rounds on social media with many claiming she was too beautiful and the Archbishop’s sin was justified.

After months of silence, Ntagali made a public confession on Thursday last week before Anglican Bishops, selected priests, and faithful who gathered at Namirembe Cathedral to mark the 60th anniversary of the Church of Uganda’s self-governance.

In his confession, the former Church leader said that although he was strong since Christmas Eve of 1974 when he got saved, he sadly weakened in faith and fell into sin. He added that he has since confessed and concealed himself in prayer seeking pardon and guidance from God.

Ntagali further revealed that he is turning to his brothers and sisters in faith to find a place in their hearts to forgive him, before seeking forgiveness from the family of Tugumehabwe.
