KAMPALA — Pr. Augustine Yiga of Rivival Church in Kawala has passed away after a long illness.
Pastor Yiga who had been hospitalised to Nsambya Hospital in Kampala for a period of time was pronounced dead in the wee hours of Tuesday October 27.
His Kawala based ABS TV Management said:
“We cannot believe that you are no longer with us. This is a tragedy for us, we will pray for you dear. Friend, mentor great pastor, rest in peace Pastor Yiga abizaayo Augustine”.
Pastor Yiga was early this year arrested by authorities after he questioned coronavirus numbers in the country.
Prosecution said Pr. Yiga, used his Television Station to tell the public that there was no coronavirus in Africa.
He coined his argument on the fact that no single death had been declared in a number of African countries, yet in the west, nations that were battling the disease had lost lives in hundreds.
