KAMPALA- The founder of the Revival Church and ABS television pastor Augustine Yiga ‘Abizaayo’ who was pronounced dead in the wee hours of Monday night will be laid to rest today Sunday November 1st 2020 at his Kawaala based church.
Pastor Yiga died at the age of 44 years and hundreds of Ugandans that include fellow pastors have come out to mourn him.
Ms. Ruth Mulungi, an elder at Revival Church Kawala who claims to have worked with Pastor Yiga for 16 years says the man of God died of liver related problems.
Mulungi revealed a few details in Yiga’s will stressing that the pastor commanded to be celebrated for five days before being buried inside his church to allow him enough time on earth to accomplish some unfinished business.
“He wanted to be buried inside the church but we don’t know if the family will honor his request,” she said.
According to Yiga’s son, Pastor Andrew Jjengo, the deceased told him on his death bed that he would want to continue hearing the cries of his flock should anyone attack them.
“He said he wanted to be buried near enough, such that he can come to do something when we are under attack. He said that burying him far from us would make it hard for him to come to our rescue,” Pastor Jjengo told the congregation at Kawaala.
The deceased’s body was on Saturday October 31st 2020 transferred from A-Plus funeral management home in Mengo to his Church for final respect before the burial on Sunday.
