KAMPALA – The outgoing Archbishop of the Church of Uganda The Most Rev Stanley Ntagali and his successor The Most Rev Stephen Kazimba Mugalu together with other elders from Diocese of Kinkizi have on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, held a meeting aimed at resolving the impasse that was created after Archdeacon Ven Rev Justus Tibesigwa was suspended from service.
In attendance was also Bishop Dan Zoreka of Diocese of Kinkizi and Rev Justus Tibesigwa who is facing a one-month suspension from service to allow an investigation to be carried out over his conduct.
Others included the Heads of Provincial Clergy and Laity, the Provincial Chancellor, and Elders who included Mr Amama Mbabazi and Dr Ben Mbonye.
According to the Provincial Secretary, Rev William Ongeng, the meeting which took place at the Archbishop Palace on Namirembe Hill was aiming at looking into the issues of the Diocese after a suspension of Rev Justus Tibesigwa.
Rev Tibesigwa was accused of gross Misconduct which was contrary to the laws governing the Church of Uganda and investigation to be led by the Diocesan Chancellor was instituted to investigate him.
However, this move did not go well with a section of Christians who petitioned Archbishop Ntagali to look into the matter.
Diocese of Kinkizi was created in 1995 out of North Kigezi Diocese and the first Bishop was Rt Rev John Wilson Ntegyereize who retired in 2010.
