A Zimbabwean man, Mark Muradzira, has been hospitalised after fasting for 33 days in a quest to get $200,000 to buy Lamborghini for his girlfriend.
A lad who thought God would give him a Lamborghini if he fasted for 40 days and 40 night in the wilderness almost lost his life in his bid to give his girlfriend her dream car.
Mark, a Youth Leader of Risen Saints Church in Bindura, central Zimbabwe, hid out in a remote mountain to prevent him from being tempted to eat, The Mbare Times reports.
Luckily, concerned friends tracked him down after just 33 days and took the emaciated 27-year-old to Bindura General Hospital where he is said to be showing signs of recovery.
Muradzira, who is unemployed, was desperate to give his girlfriend the car she wanted and with no way of finding the £150,000 or so he needed, decided that a 40 day fast might encourage God to help him out.
His church leader Bishop Mawuru while speaking the matter, said: “He should at least have fasted for a job since he is unemployed.”
Muradzira’s fellow churchgoers tried to raise enough money to buy their hapless fellow congregant a £150k Lambo, but the fundraiser stopped receiving donations at around the £30 mark.
The money they managed to raise has since been diverted to help settle Muradzira’s hefty medical bill.
