“This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels. Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked up to him to live the faith he proclaimed.”

Mugalu said none of the church members was "clean" but noted that the church leaders who went astray must be punished as they were expected to uphold high moral standards.

Ntagali suspended until further notice

He stated that Ntagali would not be allowed to perform duties such as preaching, offering sacraments or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.

Mugalu urged the church's over 13 million congregants in the landlocked country to join hands in prayers and repent amid the cheating allegations.

Kazimba said:

“This is not a time for us to gossip. This is a time for repentance; a time for prayer; a time to examine our own sin and failings in humility; and a time to make all our relationships right before God.”
