Former archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali must be deep in prayer right now asking for any kind of salvation to come his way and save him from a great sin that he committed whose consequences keep escalating, and have now reached his pockets.
In January this year, Ntagali was suspended from the Church of Uganda after it was found by the Church that he had committed adultery with one Judith Tukamuhabwa, who was wife to Rev Christopher Tugumehabwe. Last week on Thursday, Ntagali confessed publicly to the offence, made a public apology, and asked for forgiveness but it is not yet over for him.
“I fell into the 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 confessed.
Although the Church preaches forgiveness, Rev Tugumehabwe is not about to forgive Ntagali and let him go scot-free and so he has served him with a notice that demands he pays him Shs530,000,000 in damages.
Through his lawyers Bikangiso & CO. Advocates, Tugumehabwe says that Ntagali’s sinful act caused him the loss of dignity and it was the reason for his marriage to break down.
“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, loss of his job as a lecturer at Bishop Barham University College, and minimal chances to rise in the clergy ranks,” the notice reads in part.
The notice then asks Ntagali to pay Shs500 million as damages to Tugumehabwe, and Shs30 million as costs incurred so far in his divorce proceedings.
