Francisco Barajah died in hospital in Beira, Mozambique, after 25 days of fasting.
In Mozambique, a pastor died after trying to fast for 40 days, like Jesus. After 25 days without food or water, Francisco Barajah was taken in critical condition to a hospital in the city of Beira, where he died on February 15.
According to BBC, he was anemic and his digestive organs were failing. His brother claims he suffered from high blood pressure.
This pastor was also a French teacher in Messica, a border town of Zimbabwe.
The members of his church, Santa Trindade, were aware of the organization of this fast by the pastor and several Christians, but did not know the duration of it.
