Pastors denounce Bugingo over his marriage with Suzan Makula (Full statement)

The Association of Pastors under National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal churches have today denounced House of Prayer Ministries Pastor Aloysius Bugingo over his marriage with Susan Makula.

The association has said that Bugingo will only be pardoned if he accepts his mistakes and repents.

“We hereby announce and dissociate ourselves from pastor Aloysius Bugingo’s practices, outbursts, behavior, and doctrine. We, therefore, do not recognise his ministry until we see repentance and acceptable change,” The Association states.

Bugingo married Makula when he is still legally married to his first wife Teddy Naluswa Bugingo.

Before marrying her, he had a relationship with her openly going against the Bible teachings about adultery hence calling for criticism from his fellow pastors and other Ugandans.

In 2019, Bugingo filed a divorce case at Kajjansi Chief Magistrates’ Court against his wife and sought for dissolution of their marriage.

He accused Naluswa of being disrespectful to him. In her response to the divorce case, Naluswa maintains that she has never been disrespectful to Bugingo since they walked down the aisle many years ago.

She argues that she still has faith in their marriage, and that is why she considers it valid. The couple got married at Victory Christian Centre Ndeeba, in Kampala, on December 20, 2003.

The Bible prohibits  Bugingo’s actions in the following verses: Rom. 7:2-3; Mal. 2:13-16; Heb. 13:4; Mat. 5:32; 19:4-9; plus 1 Cor. 7:2-40, and especially verse 10 which says, “To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord), the wife should not separate from her husband.” Verse 11b also states clearly, “and let not the husband put away his wife.”

Also in the following verses, Gen. 2:18; Eph. 5:33; Luke 16:18, and 1 Cor. 7:39 which says, “A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to get married to whom she wishes, but only in the Lord”?

Here is the full statement

We have noted with great concern what has been appearing in the electronic and print media concerning the comments and practices of Pastor Aloysius Bugingo regarding his marital issues.

Whereas Pastor Aloysius Bugingo decided to work independently and does not recognize or subscribe to any of the unbrella organisations that bring together Evangelical and Pentecostal Churches for mutual support and accountability, we feel that the matter relating to him and his wife has escalated to a level that concerns all of us the body of Christ and the general public.

As brothers, ministers of the gospel, elders and leaders of the Church, we felt the obligation to intervene in this grave matter based on Mathew 18:15. So on the 14th May, 2019, Bishop Lwere, the General Overseer of the National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal Churches of Uganda, accompanied by three elders, namely, Apostle Alex Mitala, Elder Peterson Sozi and Bishop Morris Bukenya met and admonished Pastor Bugingo to stop using the pulpit and media to settle his family and marital issues. We told him it was totally unethical and unbiblical to discuss his wife in public, and advised him to separate church and family matters. He promised to stop and it was agreed that these elders would observe him for three months.

Unfortunately, to our utter dismay and disappointment, Pastor Aloysius Bugingo has continued abusing, degrading and shaming his family and wife Mrs Teddy Naluswa Bugingo, over matters which any husband, believer, and much less a pastor or leader, ought never to say about his wife. This is contrary to Christian ministerial ethics and practices.

We have further learnt that Pastor Aloysius Bugingo is proposing to divorce his wife to marry another, and publicly encouraging others to do so. We want to emphatically state that we strongly condemn what Pastor Aloysius Bugingo is proposing and doing. As Church leaders, we preach and teach marital faithfulness, forgiveness, and reconciliation and we do not condone marital unfaithfulness, immorality, divorce and other doctrine that undermine the sanity of family and marriage.

Having done our part as believers, brothers, ministers, elders and leaders in the body of Christ to love, admonish and correct our brother in love but in vain.

Therefore, we hereby denounce, and dissociate ourselves from Pastor Aloysius Bugingo’s practices, outbursts, behavior and doctrine.

We therefore do not recognize his ministry until we see genuine repentance and an acceptable change
