Pastor Brighton Samajomba
Pastor Brighton Samajomba from Zambia is reported to have died while on a marathon 30 days fasting and prayers programme. He is said to have died of starvation ten before the end of the fasting period.
Pastor Samajomba is said to be the Pastor of “Heaven is My Home” Ministries in Solwezi Northwest area of Zambia. He was discovered dead by his wife in the early hours of the 20th day of his 30th-day fasting programme of standing in the gap for his family members as well as church members.
Confirming the death of the Pastor to the public, the deceased’s brother Reagan Samajomba in Solwezi on Wednesday said his dead brother/pastor was fond of undertaking a fasting and prayer session that will last for several days without eating.
He disclosed that this particular fasting programme which took his life actually started on the 8th of August 2019. The brother confirmed that the deceased pastor went on the ill-fated fasting in order to pray for his family and church members who he wanted to remain united.
The brother told the Zambian Sun Newspaper that Pastor Samanjomba took on many other yearly 90 days fasting programmes during which he only took a single meal in the evening of the end of August.
He told the Times “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 said she was with him till midnight “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. (NAN REPORTED)
