Pastor Augustine Yiga: Pastor Jackson Senyonga Imprisoned Overseas over Defilement on Plane
Pastor Jackson Senyonga of Christian Life Church in Bwaise has launched a legal battle against controversial pastor Augustine Yiga of Revival Church in Kawaala.
Pastor Senyoga accuses Yiga (aka Abizaayo) of defaming him.
The owner of Top TV and Top Radio has dragged Pastor Yiga to High Court’s Civil Division.
Matovu and Company Advocates are representing Pastor Senyonga.
Senyonga is hinging his suit on a video clip in which Yiga reportedly referred to him as a child rapist, and a fake pastor.
The video clip was recorded on August 28, 2017, and Yiga was delivering a sermon on live TV.
Yiga reportedly said Senyonga had inherited the land on which Christian Life Church stands from late Apostle John Deo Balabyekkubo.
“The late Balabyekkubo was the owner of the church land and is the one who bought it, and the old fellow came in after and does not know the price of the land,” Pastor Yiga is quoted as saying.
Yiga also claims that Senyonga had “been imprisoned overseas because of defilement and moreover on a plane”.
Pastor Senyonga has prayed to court to issue a permanent injunction restraining the defendants Pastor Yiga and ABS television from defaming him.
He also wants Pastor Yiga’s agents, servants or employees from uttering defamatory statements against him.
The pastor also wants Yiga to publicly withdraw his statements.
He also wants Yiga to pay him damages.
