CATHOLIC Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo’s wife, Maria Sung, yesterday wept for him.

Maria who is in the country to lobby the Zambian government to pressurise the Vatican so that she could have access to Archbishop Milingo yesterday told a press briefing that they were still married despite the Vatican’s declaration that the relationship was over.

“I don’t believe the marriage is over, I did not marry the Vatican, I married Archbishop Milingo,” Maria said. “I hope to have a child and even the Archbishop desires that.”

Maria, who broke down during her testimony of how she has ‘suffered’ for the past one year, said she had always supported Archbishop Milingo to continue with the Catholic church but was concerned that her husband was now ‘imprisoned’.

Maria lashed out at the Vatican for marriage interference saying marriage was an institution put together by “God which no man should put asunder”. She challenged the Catholics to respect the word of God if they were true believers by allowing her access to her husband.

Maria said Archbishop Milingo had been called upon by God to end the many problems that had rocked the Catholic church which included homosexuality and lesbianism.

“Because of these problems he has not been at peace. He received a message from God that go to Reverend Moon who is going to guide you to a lady so that you fight celibacy,” she said.
