KAMPALA- City Pastor Augustine Yiga of Revival Christian Church (RCC) is dead, his church has announced.

According to messages posted on all social media platforms of the church, the pastor who is also proprietor of Kawala based television ABS TV is no more though the announcement fell short of saying when he passed.

“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,” ABS TV posted.

Last week, Yiga was announced dead, something that was refuted by both his church administration and family.

He has been admitted at Nsambya Hospital where he is receiving medical attention.

Yiga is most recently remembered for denying the existence of COVID-19, an act that saw him charged with acts likely to spread the deadly Covid-19 pandemic and was subsequently remanded to Kitalya Prison before releasing him on bail.
