Newly Found Oldest Man in the World says he is ready for Death at the age of 145 Years
An Indonesian man Mbah Gotho has been named as the oldest person in the world, and he is believed to be 145 years of age; however he says he is ready to die.
Gotho emerged from obscurity via a documentation which was confirmed by Indonesian officials indicating that he was born on 31st December in 1870.
Surprisingly, the man has managed to outlive not only his four wives but also his ten children and thus he is survived by his grandchildren, great-grandchildren as well as great-great-grandchildren.
In an interview with regional reporters, the Gotho who resides in Sragen, Central Java said he wanted to pass on adding that his grandchildren were all independent.
Gotho’s grandson, Suryanto said his grandfather has been making preparations for his death since he was 122-years-old although death has yet to come for him. He also pointed to a gravestone that was made for Gotho 24 years ago.
If Mbah is not listed as the oldest man in the world, then he will join the likes of James Olofintuyi and Dhaqabo Ebba of Ethiopia who are purported to be 171 and 13-years old respectively.
