A 37-year-old Zambian pastor identified as Brighton Samajomba of the “Heaven Is My Home” of Kazomba Township of Solwezi has met his untimely death after going hungry for 20 days in the name of fasting.

Pastor Samajomba was reportedly observing 30 days fasting but passed on in the early hours of the 20th day after he was found motionless by his wife and his death.

The brother of the deceased known as Reagan Samajomba in Solwezi, said Pastor Samajomba who led a lifestyle of taking on many days of prayer and fasting programmes, started his fasting on his yearly August fast on 8th with a view to pray for his family and church members who he wanted to remain united.

He told The Zambian Sun that, Samanjomba took on many other yearly 90 days fasting programmes during which he only had a single meal in the evening each August.

“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 midnight.

“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 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.
