Brenda Nalubega, the lady who dragged renowned Pastor Augustine Yiga to court for child neglect and, raping and infecting her with the deadly Aids virus, has passed on.

According to sources, Ms Nalubega died yesterday evening, after prolonged suffering ostensibly because of her ailment and thoughts about her baby. Little is known about the whereabouts of her son, but at the time of her she was reportedly living with a relative in one of the city suburbs.

According to the deceased’s narrative given at the height of their troubles, Ms Nalubega said then that she first got in contact with Pastor Yiga aka Abizaayo at his Christian Revival Church in Kawaala, while seeking ‘blessings’ for her imminent give away and marriage around 2007.

It was during the subsequent ‘blessing meetings’ that the Pastor allegedly raped Ms Nalubega, resulting in a pregnancy which would later give rise to a baby boy named (names withheld because he is a minor), the subject of a protracted legal battle for child neglect.

The two then fell out after pastor Yiga denied fathering the child, prompting Ms Nalubega to report a child neglect case against him to FIDA. With the heat now turned on, the Pastor was ordered to take a DNA test, something he declined and instead opted to care of both the child and mother.

However, according to sources, after sometime the Pastor reneged on his commitment, forcing Ms Nalubega to drag him to the Nabweru court, where the magistrate ordered Yiga to pay a monthly upkeep of Shs150.000.

But last year Ms Nalubega’s lawyers sought to have that figure revised upwards to Shs800.000, a prayer that was granted by High Court Judge Muse Musembi.

Who is Pastor Augustine Yiga aka Abizaayo?

Pastor Yiga ‘Abizaayo’ emerged on Uganda’s religious following claims that he had powers to exorcise bad omen and cast it unto the ‘sender’, a claim that helped him attract a large congregation of followers who believe in the effectiveness of a fusion between religion and cultism.

Over the years the flamboyant Pastor who cruises a white Toyota Land Cruiser with customized number plates tagged ‘ABIZAAYO’, has been linked to several women but was reportedly secretly introduced to his fiancée Juliet Namutebi’s parents in March this year, allegedly throwing a spanner in the wheels for the other women in his life, including singer Maggie Kayima aka Nabbi Omukazi and her sister Betty Namisinga, a duo that once accused the Pastor of having ‘carpet interviews’ with his female flock.
