What will be missed about Pastor Yiga

It is no longer a rumour that Pastor Augustine Yiga alias ‘Abizaayo’ is dead.  He earned the name Abizaayo because of his claims that he had powers to send back evil spirits or witchcraft from wherever it originated from.

Pastor Yiga, who founded the Kawaala based Revival Church, was pronounced dead on Monday night.  Farouq Ssemaganda, the head of Communication ABS TV, said Pastor Yiga was first admitted at Life Link hospital about three weeks ago from where he was diagnosed with liver complications.

He was transferred to Nsambya hospital where breathed his last around 10 pm on Monday. The deceased was loved and hated in equal measure because of his humorous preaching style. He also often came under scrutiny when some accused him of neglecting the children they sired with him.

Dramatic teachings

Several members of his church told this publication that they will miss his fun-filled preaching sessions such as ‘Kiki Kyoliffa Nga Tewelabidde’ loosely translated as what you will not forget till death, which would air on his ABS television each day of the week.

In Kiki Kyoliffa tewelabidde, congregants would share bizarre occurrences in their life as the pastor probed them.

He would often task the congregants to demonstrate or illustrate how the weird things happened. He would also ask them to reveal the identities of the people they think are behind their predicament.
