After being pronounced dead several times yet he was still alive, pastor Augustine Yiga aka Abizaayo has finally died for real, after he breathed his last at Nsambya Hospital on Monday night, according to a statement from the television.
Announcing his death, ABS TV, which he owned prior to his demise, wrote on social media platforms that; “Pastor Yiga Abizayo is dead. May his soul rest in peace. We love you so much our Father.”
“We plan to bury him on Saturday (October 31). That’s all I can tell you,” a family members of preferred anonymity told this website.
By the time of filing this story, several mourners and his followers had started arriving at his church to pay their last respect.
Last week, a section of the media announced the controversial pastor dead following liver complications but his family later dismissed the reports as false, insisting he was still alive.
His son, Andrew Jjengo then said the pastor had been sick for some time.
Yiga’s demise comes five months after he was released on bail following his arrest for allegedly uttering false information and spreading harmful propaganda in relation to the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19), after he claimed that the virus doesn’t exist in Uganda.
He was released by the Rubaga Grade One Magistrate, Timothy Lumunye on non-cash bail of Shs2 million while each of his two sureties were bonded at Shs5 million.
During the court proceedings, Lumunye said he had been furnished with evidence that the pastor was diabetic and undergoing treatment.
