A 30 day fasting allegedly claimed the life of a Pastor Brighton Samajomba ten days days before its completion.
Pastor Brighton Samajomba, of “Heaven Is My Home” of Kazomba Township of Solwezi was found dead by his wife in the early hours on the 20th day of his 30-day fasting programme.
The death of Pastor Samajomba was confirmed by his brother Reagan Samajomba in Solwezi yesterday in a telephone interview.
But when contacted for a comment North-Western police commissioner Mr Hudson Namachila said he had no yet received a report on the matter.
However his brother said Pastor Samajomba led a life of fasting and prayers and he started this one on August 8 to pray for his family and church members.
The brother told the Sun that, Pastor Samanjomba took on many other fast including 90 days fasting programmes.
“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 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
