SA Gogo’s Going Strong At 110!

GOGO Junior Mlomo of Mookgophong, Limpopo celebrated a big milestone on Saturday.

Born on 8 April 1907, she turned 110 years old a few weeks ago, making her the oldest person in her area.

Her family and friends threw a party for her over the weekend, making sure that all her 44 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and 33 great-great-grandchildren attended to wish her well.

The gogo can still see, talk, hear and walk without being helped.

She said the secret to her long life lies is respect, a healthy diet, exercise and never taking drugs.

“I eat fruit and pap with morogo or milk. My favourite meat is freshly slaughtered chicken. Cleaning my house helps keeping me fit and active. I also work in my vegetable garden.

“Ever since the father of my six children died in 1981, I never remarried or thought of having a Ben 10. I lived alone and took care of my kids with the help of the Almighty.”

One of her daghters, Sophy Mahlangu (65), said: “We feel blessed to still have her in our lives. We know we can count on her for advice. Our kids and grandchildren have a chance to learn about the good old days from our mother.”
