Zimbabwean Man Dies Trying To Emulate Jesus By Fasting 40 Days & 40 Nights
A Christian man, who intended to fast for 40 days and 40 nights like Jesus Christ, has been reported dead on his 30th day of fasting.
According to a report, a 73-year-old stern Christian man in Zimbabwe has died after attempting to emulate Jesus Christ by fasting for 40 days and 40 nights.
Khulu Reinfirst Manyuka (73) reportedly left home on 15 June this year and headed to the bush to conduct prayers, redirecting his attention to God, away in solace from things of the earth.
Manyuka was known by his family and community at large as a very spiritual person whose faith could move mountains. His death puzzled those dearest to him.
Manyuka was driven to the wilderness by the urge to emulate Christ but sadly he did not equal or break Christ’s record.
