BISHOP JOHNSON TAKEN TO ARCHBISHOP KAZIMBA OVER UNLAWFUL SYNOD
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
A section of West Ankole diocese Christians have written a letter to the Archbishop of Church of Uganda Stephen Kazimba over unlawful constitution of the synod.
West Ankole diocese last week on 12th March 2022 constituted the 11th Synod which Christians claim was put up unlawful.
Christians led by Emmanuel Karasi pin Bishop Johnson Twinomujni of allowing Mbarara and Kampala chapters to have representatives in the synod which is against the constitution of the Church of Uganda.
They also accuse the Bishop of wrongly appointing the diocesan chancellor Marvin Baryaruha.
They contended that instead of the bishop nominating the chancellor, he was rather nominated by a synod member Anthony Katwarana which is also against the church constitution.
They now want the head of laity election to be rendered null and void since the synod that elected them was unlawful.
The Christians demand that the diocese reconstitutes a new synod as per the law established and would want to meet with the archbishop to formally discuss some of the issues pertaining their diocese.
They have threatened to seek court redress if their issues raised are not handled with in the next 14 days.
