GCFA Continues Sanctions Against East Africa Bishop


The board of The United Methodist Church’s finance agency is taking separate actions against two African bishops over financial and accounting issues. Some relate to issues raised by the Western PA Conference regarding use of $100,000 given to the East Africa Conference. 

In one instance, the General Council on Finance and Administration board decided Nov. 21 that the finance agency will withhold funds from East Angola Area Bishop José Quipungo’s episcopal office until he provides “a satisfactory episcopal office” audit.

The finance agency’s board also continues to sanction East Africa Area Bishop Daniel Wandabula, who faces longstanding questions for how his episcopal area has used more than $757,000 in church funds.
