A Jesus Christ wannabe has died after a 30-day fast without food and water, reports said.
Alfred Ndlovu, a South African pastor, had declared he wanted to fast for 40 days and, in his move to mimic Jesus walking in the wilderness, chose to be in the bush. However, Ndlovu did not make it as he died of malnutrition after 30 days into the fasting. An unnamed relative of the pastor lamented his death.
“He was a very spiritual man. It’s unfortunate he had to die this way.
“Pastor was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age,” the relative said.
