Khulu Reinfirst Manyuka, 73, also known as Jesus of Zimbabwe, has reportedly died of malnutrition after he attempted to emulate the 40 days and nights fast the biblical Jesus did.
Mr Khulu Manyuka was said to have left his home on June 15, 2015 for a bush to conduct prayers to God.
According to reports, the man died on the 30th day of his fast, a close relative was quoted to have disclosed.
“He was a very spiritual man. It’s unfortunate he had to die this way,” the close relative reportedly said.
“He was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age,” revealed one family member, who also said Manyuka had no history of illness.
