A Ugandan Pastor based in the US has allegedly taken his own life after engagement photos of his girlfriend he left only a month ago in Uganda went viral.
The deceased, Abel Ayinza, 25, was an adopted son of Pastor Samuel Mutyaba of New Life Christian International Church in Watertown, Massachusetts. His girlfriend was identified only as Juliet.
His late father, Pastor Mutyaba founded the church that caters to Ugandan community back in 2004. He offered immigration and marriage counselling to Ugandans in Massachusetts.
Ayinza’s parents are late. He lost his mother on the 14th of July 2015 while his father died on the 24th of March 2016.
His body is currently undergoing autopsy.
Photographs showed Juliet wearing a red gomesi while the man wore a kanzu and jacket. “He was so depressed when the photographs went viral and it became quite difficult for him to bear,” Simple Nsereko, a Ugandan living in Boston, said.
It was further alleged that Juliet is also a U.S citizen, but left the country, recently, on grounds of checking on her family in Uganda, only to resurface in an engagement with another lover.
