On Friday, rumors of his death were spreading like a wild fire, but he was able to talk to some of his followers letting them know that he will be back any time soon. His look alike son Pastor Andrew Jengo also came out to clear the space that his dad was still alive, but it is sad that days later, the comic and jovial pastor is no more.
At his church in Kawaala, followers have gathered in large numbers waiting for his body to arrive. A Rhino Funeral service hearse is seen parked by the church, but the body is not in.
Pastor Yiga was not only in preaching, but had also mentored some gospel artists like Maggie Kayima aka Nabbi Omukazi and Hajat Madina of the Bibuza fame.
Maggie Kayima is one of those that have been at the hospital this morning, but has declined to speak to the media.
Details of Pastor Yiga's funeral are yet to be released. He was born on July 27 1976 and he was confirmed dead on October 27. 2020.
