A few hours ago, social media has been awash with death news of Kawala-based Revival Church’s Pastor, Augustine Yiga.
The need to first authenticate news before disseminating it is still much alive because Ugandan reputable media houses shared the news, and had to shamefully delete their posts after finding out that the “Man of God” is still alive.
Pastor Yiga’s ABS TV channel was quick to classify the circulating news as fake, calling out everyone that was distributing it to stop.
“Whoever is saying that Pr Yiga is dead please and please stop, he is sound and safe and thank you,” ABS posted on its official social media platforms.
To clear the air about his health, ABS has said that Yiga will hold a live broadcast on his YouTube channel at a yet-to-be communicated time to address matter regarding his health.
“I am going to be live on my YouTube channel subscribe and wait,” ABS shared.
ExposedUganda has established that the controversial and jovial pastor has been bedridden at Nsambya Hospital in Kampala due to liver complications and he continues to receive treatment from there.
In April this year, Yiga spent over a month in Prison after claiming that COVID-19 was a hoax, not in Uganda, and that Ugandan officials were using it to get money from donors and well-wishers.
