Pastor Augustine Yiga has passed on.
The news about his death was revealed by the management of ABS TV station on Tuesday.
“ABS TV announces the sudden death of our beloved CEO and founder of Revival Christian Church Pastor Augustine Yiga commonly known as ‘Abizaayo’. We will dearly miss him for all his good work done in lives of many and for our country at large. May his Soul Rest in Peace.” the management of Kawaala based TV station said in a statement.
Yiga was first pronounced dead last Friday but the report was dismissed by his son Pastor Andrew Jjengo who said his father was alive and just needed prayers to get back on his feet.
A few weeks ago, the preacher was admitted at Nsambya Hospital battling what was termed as “liver complications”.
Pastor Yiga was a common face for his comic sermons and statements that often landed him in trouble.
Most recently, he was in prison for a couple of weeks for making statements that the state deemed reckless. He claimed that Covid-19 didn’t exist.
May his Soul Rest In Peace.
