Pastor Augustine Yiga Abizaayo, the founder of Revival Christian Church in Kawaala has been released on bail and banned from ever saying the word 'coronavirus' again.

Yiga was released by the Rubaga Grade One Magistrate, Timothy Lumunye on non-cash bond of Shs2m while each of his two sureties were bonded at Shs5 million.

Pastor Yiga, who appeared in court via video link from Kitalya Government prison, was locked up for engaging in an act likely to spread an infectious disease.

“I have considered the two sureties. I am satisfied that they have the capacity to guarantee that the applicant when released on bail will comply with the terms and conditions of bail. They are substantial within the context of this application,” ruled the magistrate.

Mr Lumunye ruled that in releasing Pastor Yiga, the court was furnished with evidence of proof that he is diabetic and undergoing treatment.

“As such it is only fair and just that he (Yiga) is released on bail to enable him see medical treatment,” the court added.
