Man, 73, Dies Emulating Jesus Christ’s 40 Days Fast
Khulu Reinfirst Manyuka (73) AKA Jesus of Zimbabwe has died of malnutrition after he attempted to emulate the 40 days and night fast of Jesus of Nazareth.
Mr Khulu Manyuka reportedly left home on 15 June this year headed to the bush to conduct prayers, redirecting his attention to God, away from things of the earth.
According to reports, he died on the 30th day of his fast. A close relative who chose to speak on condition of anonymity broke the news.
“He was a very spiritual man. It's unfortunate he had to die this way,” said a close relative.
Family members said Manyuka had no history of illness. “He was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age,” revealed one family member.
