Mozambique cleric dies trying to attempt Jesus’ 40-day fast



By Wanja Waweu

A Christian in Mozambique lost his life while attempting to fast for 40 days in imitation of what the Bible says Christ did.

The Santa Trindade Evangelical Church’s founder, Francisco Barajah, passed away at a Beira hospital after being sent there in a severe condition.

He had dropped so much weight that he was unable to stand up after 25 days of going without food or water. His age was 39.

He had been rushed to the hospital on the advice of his loved ones and supporters. Mr. Barajah was identified as having acute anemia and digestive organ failure.

He was given serums to rehydrate him, and an effort was made to give him liquid food, but it was too late, and he passed away on Wednesday.

At the village of Messica in the central province of Manica, which borders Zimbabwe, the pastor also taught French.

Members of the Santa Trindade Church claimed that the pastor and his adherents frequently fasted, though not for such an extended period of time.

The preacher had fasted, according to his brother Marques Manuel Barajah, but he disputed the medical assessment of his demise.

The reality was that my brother had low blood pressure, he said.
