KAARO KARUNGI | KAMPALA – Ntagali is accused of eloping with Judith Tukamuhabwa, the wife of Rev Christopher Tugumehabwe.
However, in a notice of intension to sue, Rev Tugumehabwe through his lawyers says 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 sire a child and that he encouraged her to seek for divorce which is against church values.
“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 in proof the same,” the lawyers say.
According to the letter of intention to sue, the recent admission by Ntagali that he eloped with a married woman is evidence enough to pin him in the pending court case and that in order to avoid being taken to court, he ought to pay damages.
“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 Church of Uganda Reverend says he wants shs500 million for damages occasioned to him and shs30 million for the costs incurred in the divorce case currently ongoing in court.
