With no care for COVID-19 SOPs, mourners adjusted their masks in order weep.


At the entrance to the church, there were neither handwashing points nor sanitisers. Inside, no one cared about social-distancing.

Unlike in the past when Yiga would calm down those who went to him with trouble, this time there was no one to offer any consolation.

Nevertheless, a portrait of a smiling Yiga was carried ahead of the coffin that contained the remains of the man that has come to be referred to as Pastor Abizayo.
