A Ugandan archbishop has issued a public apology after sleeping with a married woman.
Retired Anglican Archbishop Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali, was in January this year suspended from priestly duties after it emerged that he had an affair with someone’s wife.
Speaking before Anglican bishops and selected priests at Namirembe Cathedral, Ntagali confessed to sleeping with one Judith Tukamuhabwa.
“On Christmas Eve 1974 as a young man, I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, and I still love the Lord because he has loved me, and I have loved to serve him over the years. Sadly, I fell into sin of adultery, and I confessed to the Lord to forgive me, and I want the church to forgive me,” he said.
It later emerged that Judith happens to be one of the priests’ wife.
“My brother bishops, all our partners, brothers and sister in the vineyard of the Lord, the entire church of Uganda and all our partners all over the world and the family of Rev Christopher his wife Judith, the two families please forgive me. And I want to remain closer to Jesus,” added Ntagali.
However, GOTTA.news learnt that Judith had filed a divorce from his husband in December, 2020 accusing her husband of being cruel.
Judith and Christopher got married in 2018.
