The Bishop of Yambio in the Episcopal Church of the Sudan, the Rt Rev Peter Munde, has been placed on year’s administrative leave of absence.

On 28 December 2012 Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul stated Bishop Munde would be taking a sabbatical in Uganda for year. The decision to send the bishop away was taken to help defuse a split in the diocese that had seen a number of senior clergy withdraw from the church in protest at their bishop.

Archbishop Deng declined to state why the bishop had been sent on leave, but clergy sources in the Sudanese Church report the bishop had been accused of misappropriating funds, nepotism, and ordaining illiterates to the priesthood.

The Archbishop has appointed the Rev Samuel Borete as Vicar General for the diocese in the bishop’s absence and has asked the Bishop of Maridi, the Rt Rev Justin Badi to exercise episcopal oversight for the coming year.

Its true that Bp Peter is placed for a subbatical leave of one year inoder to solve some of the administartive lapse that swalled the church.
There should be proper financial management.
Changing tbe corrupt inner circle of Bp Munde which he still insists sholud not be changed.
Giving the right positions in the Diocese to the right qualified pastors.
Stop seggreting or hating any one who tells facts about what happens.
