A Mozambican pastor has reportedly passed away after attempting to fast for 40 days and 40 nights like Jesus Christ.

The pastor who has been identified as the founder of the Santa Trindade Evangelical Church in the central province of Manica, Francisco Barajah, apparently couldn’t stand, walk, or bath by himself at the end of the 40 days of fasting.

Unfortunately, he passed away at a hospital in the city of Beira on Wednesday, 12th February 2023.

Eyewitnesses reported that he refused to take water and food during the fast, which stirred concern from his family and friends. He however lost his life after the fasting period.
