Catholic priest sacked for marrying two wives

A catholic priest, Reverend Father Peter Zuni, has been sacked after it emerged he is secretly married to two women who bore him children.

Reverend Father Zuni was the parish priest at Queen of Apostles Catholic Church, Kakuri parish, Kaduna State, until the bubble burst when one of his wives, who is nursing a nine-month old baby blew the lid off their secret marriage, The Sun reported.

The other wife according to the report is late.

In catholic church, only celibates are ordained to priesthood. However, Father Zumi who had spent 30 years in priesthood was found out to be active sexually and married to two women about three weeks ago when his wife who is alive petitioned the Bishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Bishop Ndagoso Manoso.

The report said the petition was investigated and after it was established that truly Father Zumi is married to the petitioner, and they have children together he was sacked.

“I find it difficult myself to believe what people are saying about me. I will not comment on it now. I will follow due process to invite you for an interview, but I am afraid, the newspaper of the archdiocese, The Cross News, may carry this story before you,” the embattled former priest told The Sun.
However, Bishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Bishop Ndagoso Manoso confirmed the story to the paper but feared for Father Zumi’s health following the revelation.

“It is true that he had affairs with two women and they both had children for him, but one of the women is late already.

“…You can now imagine what the priest is going through, either spiritually or psychologically… he is diabetic. By December he will be 30 years in the priesthood, and he is now 54 years old, so at this age what can he do with his life. Nobody can employ him now. He spent seven years in the seminary and 30 years in the priesthood, and that is 37 years, so what can he do with his life at 54?”
