Former Archbishop Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali has finally confessed publically that he committed adultery with Judith Tukamuhabwa, a wife to priest Rev Christopher.
While appearing before the public for the first at the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Church of Uganda self-governance at Namirembe Cathedral since his adultery scandal came to the public in January, Ntagali made a public apology and sought for forgiveness.
“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. My brother bishops, all our partners, brothers and sisters in the vineyard of the lord, the entire church of Uganda and all our partners all over the world and the family Rev Christopher his wife Judith, the two families please forgive me. And I want to remain closer to Jesus,” Ntagali said.
Kazimba welcomed the confession of his predecessor saying sin is human and when truly confessed to God, one receives forgiveness.
Following the scandal in January, Kazimba suspended Ntagali from performing priestly duties -noting that the Church of Uganda sees adultery as immoral as homosexuality and that they cannot shy away from their commitment to moral standards.
Ntagali served as 8th Archbishop of the Church of Uganda until March 1, 2020, when he clocked the mandatory retirement age of 65.
