In a letter to the GAFCON leaders that URN has accessed, Archbishop Kaziimba says that he has informed the retired Archbishop Ntagali that he is not permitted to function sacramentally, preach, or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.
Archbishop Kazimba says social media is used by many people for different reasons and its being disabled leaves many people stranded.His remarks come following government’s decision to switch off social media yesterday afternoon. While addressing the country ahead of tomorrow’s polls, President Yoweri Museveni said the internet was switched off in retaliation to Facebook’s decision to close accounts of some National Resistance Movement-NRM supporters
The decision by the Archbishop, the Most Rev. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu follows the death of the Bishop of Nebbi Rt. Rev. Alphonse Watho-Kudi on Sunday at Arua Regional Referral Hospital after he succumbed to Covid-19.
"Following the pending process and activities in the Diocese, this is to request you to continue as caretaker Bishop of Kumi Diocese until a substantive Bishop is elected and consecrated." the letter reads in part.
