Allegations the Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Rwanda (PEAR) solicited a $250,000 gratuity from the Anglican Mission in America and its refusal led to the breach with the African church are baseless, church leaders tell Anglican Ink.
Rumors have circulated on the internet for the past few days accusing the Rwandan primate of graft. “I learned from an unimpeachable source today that Rwandan Archbishop Rwaje had asked Bishop Chuck Murphy for $250,000 to build a home,” one message shared on a popular Anglican news portal alleged.
Speculation attached to the rumor said the refusal of Bishop Murphy to agree to the shakedown might have been behind his “downfall from Rwanda.”
Archbishop Onesphore Rwaje of Rwanda told Anglican Ink the accusations were “not true.”
