- A pastor from Uganda, who is based in the US, has reportedly ended his life
- According to reports, the 25-year-old pastor was depressed after he found out that his girlfriend got engaged to another man
When it comes to matters of the relationship dramas, people react to heartbreaks differently. Some walk away peacefully while others become violent.
Such was the case of a Ugandan man of God, who was said to have killed himself after his girlfriend got engaged to another man. He was based in Massachusetts, United States (US).
Briefly.co.za gathers that the deceased was shocked after pictures of his girlfriend went viral on social media.
This unfortunate incident happened a month after he left his woman in Uganda. His remains were found at the state cemetery on Monday afternoon, July 30.
The deceased identified as Abel Ayinza was the adopted son of Pastor Samuel Mutyaba of New Life Christian International Church, Watertown in Massachusetts. His ex-girlfriend was identified as Juliet.
Ayinza's late father reportedly founded the church that caters for the Ugandan community in 2004. His father also offered immigration and marriage counselling to Ugandans in Massachusetts.
He lost his mother on July 14, 2015, while his father passed away on March 24, 2016, and has been under the care of Pastor Mutyaba since the death of his father.
However, a Ugandan man living in the US reportedly disclosed that: “He was so depressed when the photographs went viral and it became quite difficult for him to bear.”
The late Ayiza’s body was reportedly undergoing autopsy when the first reports surfaced.
