Africa: Catholic priest suspended for whistle-blowing

Fr. Anthony Musala

CATHOLIC PRIEST SUSPENDED FOR WHISTLE-BLOWING ON SEX ABUSE

In late March the Catholic Church suspended indefinitely a Ugandan priest, Fr. Anthony Musala, who chose to blow the whistle on widespread sexual abuse of children and other crimes committed by African clergy.

Musaala’s leaked letter to Archbishop Cyprian Lwanga that cited numerous instances of wrongdoings among the Uganda priesthood, including secret wives, children and abuse of minors prompted his suspension. Musala was abused himself by a priest when he was 16yrs old, at a top Ugandan school before he went to England to seminary.
