A 37 year old Solwezi pastor identified as Brighton Samajomba, has died in the process of trying to complete an intensive 30 day fast.
He had reportedly died while he was still 20 days into the intense fasting regimen.
The pastor popularly known as “Heaven Is My Home” of Kazomba Township of Solwezi was found dead by his wife.
The death of Pastor Samajomba was confirmed by his brother Reagan Samajomba in Solwezi who said his brother led a lifestyle of taking on many days of prayer and fasting programmes.
Mr Samajomba told the Sun that, Pastor Samanjomba took on many other yearly 90 days fasting programmes during which he only had a single meal in the evening.
“I would say he died in the early hours, because my sister and his wife were there and took turns to check on him, and then it was time for my in law to check on him, she was with him according to her till mid night,
“Then she decided to rest, when she woke up, they had a tendency of sharing dreams with each other as partners. So she dreamt of something and wanted to tell the husband.
But as she tried to shake him up, he was not responding and so he was rushed to the hospital that day where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The only consolation that we have as a family is the way he died because he was in the closet with the Lord.” Reagan said
