JAKARTA – Sodimejo who was assumed to be the oldest living person in Indonesia at 146 years old, died yesterday.
Also known as Mbah Gotho, the man from Sragen, Solo in Central Java, reportedly died after being admitted to Sragen Hospital two days ago.
Sambungmacan Section deputy police chief Zaeni was quoted by online media as saying that the centenarian regularly received treatment at the hospital but refused to be admitted.
“He was warded at the hospital before this but insisted to be taken him home,” he said.
Based on his resident identity card, Mbah Gotho, who had never suffered from any critical illness, was born in December 1870.
The man outlived his four wives and three of his children. — BERNAMA
