Famous city Pastor Augustine Yiga of Revival Christian Church is to spend another week in jail after his bail application was turned down.
Pastor Yiga of Revival Christian Church Kawaala was remanded to Kitalya government prison for mi's informing the public that corona virus is not in Uganda and Africa yet.
Pastor Yiga pleaded not guilty and he therefore applied for bail but instead presiding magistrate Timothy Lumunye remanded him because his church followers filled up the courtroom, not mindful about social distancing.
According to KFM news, the magistrates then referred his bail application ruling to today but however without any explanations from prison authorities at Kitalya , Pastor Yiga has not been brought to court prompting his lawyer Wilber Kayiwa to ask government install audio-visual equipment in all courts and remand places.
This also left no option for the magistrate but to issue a production warrant ordering prisons to produce pastor Yiga on Thursday next week (16th/April ).
