Reports of Pastor Augustine Yiga being bedridden with liver complications and meeting his creator have been ongoing for weeks.
The full of life pastor who has been fighting for his life at Nsambya Hospital had some trusted media platforms pronounce him dead but his family came out strong using one of the church’s media, ABS Television.
Early this morning, the same media outlet released a statement confirming that Yiga a.k.a Abizaayo had breathed his last.
This comes in four days after the false reports about the founder of Kawaala-based Revival Church.
“There are no goodbyes. Wherever you’ll be, you’ll be in our hearts. You will always be within us, it’s just the graveyard where you lay to rest. We cannot believe that you are no longer with us. This is a tragedy for us, we will pray for you dear friend, father, mentor, great pastor. Rest in peace. Pastor yiga abizaayo Augustine,” read a statement on ABS TV Facebook page.
This saw many join family, friends and church to mourn the jolly pastor.
