Rt Rev. Jackson Matovu, the outgoing Bishop of Central Buganda Diocesan Bishop has called off planned farewell events as a rift escalates over the rejection of Canon Michael Lubowa, his elected successor.
Canon Michael Lubowa, a son to Bishop Emeritus George Ssinabulya was elected about two months ago by the House of Bishops to take over a diocese which his father once led.
However, a section of Christians rejected Canon Lubowa on 24 grounds who they labeled as a scandalous religious leader who allegedly defrauded hundreds of Christians through his defunct Non-Government Organization – Action Christ in Development (ACID) TRUST.
On the basis of this, and other grounds, a group of Christians led by Ssalongo Kasozi Kamya and Samuel Kiggundu petitioned the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali seeking nullification of Lubowa’s election and deployment.
At the time of fling this report, the aggrieved Christians were expected to meet with Archbishop of the Church of Uganda His Grace Stanley Ntagali at Namirembe in Kampala to present evidence to that effect
