Pastor Augustine Yiga aka "Abizayo" has on Monday 30th been charged by Mwanga 11 Grade One Magistrate Timothy Lumunye of "doing an act likely to spread infection" an offence contrary to selection 171 of the Penal Code Act.

The senior pastor of Revival Church Kawaala was last week arrested on allegations of using his position to spread false information against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having pleaded not guilty, the CEO ABSTV through his lawyers had sought for bail from the trial magistrate given the fact that its his constitutional right, has a permanent place of residence and children to look after.

He had also presented three members of his church as sureties whom would advise him on when to return for court sessions. Pastor Yiga has however been remanded to Kitalya Government Prison in Mityana district until 6th April when the magistrate will deliver his ruling on his bail application.
