Retired Church of Uganda Archbishop Stanley Ntagali’s troubles are far from ending after the husband of the woman he allegedly had an extra-marital affair with, has asked for shs530 million in damages for sleeping with his wife.
Ntagali is accused of sleeping with Judith Tugumehabwe, the wife of Rev Christopher Tugumehabwe on top of having a child of Ntagali while still legally married to Tukamuhabwe.
In a notice of intension to sue, Rev Tugumehabwe through his lawyers contends that whereas he was wedded with Tukamuhabwa in December 2018, he has found out that the love affair between his wife and the former Archbishop saw the two bear a child and that he encouraged her to seek for divorce which is against church values.
”Our client celebrated a church marriage with his wife Tugumehabwa Judith on the 15th Day of December 2018.
On the 8th Day of December 2020, our client’s wife petitioned for divorce before the Chief Magistrates Court of Kabale at Kabale on the ground of “Cruelty”.
It has come to our client’s knowledge that you were committing adultery with our client’s wife and that she currently bears your own child who was born in their marriage
It has also come to our client’s knowledge that you encouraged, advised, and ensured that our client’s wife petitions for divorce.
We have also recently learnt from various media platforms of the fact that you admitted to having committed an offence of adultery with our client’s wife. In addition, we have overwhelming video and audio evidence to prove the same
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 collage and minimal chances to rise in the clergy ranks.
WHEREFORE We hereby make the followings demands:
(a) Pay a sum of Ugx.500,000,000 as damages occasioned to our client.”
Rev. Tugumehabwe also demands a formal apology from the retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda for eloping with his wife.
“Should you fail to comply with the above demands made therein within a period of 14 days from the date of receipt of this notice, we leave been given “a green Iight” by our client to drag you to court at your own cost, detriment, further embarrassment, and peril,” the lawyers say.
Last week, Ntagali publicly asked for forgiveness saying he was tempted by the devil to commit the sin just like any other human being.

“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 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 sister 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,” Ntagali said before 36 Bishops at Namirembe Cathedral as the Anglican Church marked 60 years of self-governance.
