Pastor Augustine Yiga, the founder of Revival Church Kawala is out on police bond. Pastor Yiga was released on Monday evening following his detention at Kawempe Police Station on Friday evening.

Pastor Yiga was locked up when he went to Kawempe Police Station to record a statement against accusations of raping and impregnating one of his followers in 2014.

The alleged victim claims that the pastor raped her in the prayer room where she had gone to seek spiritual redemption and financial breakthrough to cater for her siblings since they had grown up as orphans.

Pastor Yiga’s lawyer, Evans Ochieng said his client was released on police bond around 7.30pm on Monday. He said Yiga was instructed to report to Kawempe Police Station on February 18, 2019 as one of the conditions attached to his bond.
On Saturday, Pastor Yiga’s followers stormed Kawempe Police Station demanding his unconditional release, saying the charges against him are framed. This is not the first time, Pastor Yiga who also owns ABS TV, is being dragged to court.

In 2007, Brendah Nalubega dragged Yiga before Nabweru Magistrate’s Court for allegedly failing to take care of the Child they had together. The same year, Yiga was dragged to the Executions Division of High Court for failing to pay the monthly up keep of Shillings 150,000 for the child as directed by court.

Nalubega first sought help from FIDA Uganda, which failed to reign in on the pastor. It is until when DNA tests were conducted that Pastor Yiga accepted responsibility for Nalubega’s child.
