The world’s oldest living woman Johanna Mazibuko celebrated her 128th birthday on May 11.

Johanna Mazibuko was born in Jouberton, Klerksdorp, in South Africa’s North West province. Her name is also delved in The Guinness Book of World Records, with the evidence showing the woman was born in May 1894.

She said that she was born on a maize farm in the Ottosdal region. Johanna also stated that she was the eldest of 12 and three of her siblings are still alive today. She has witnessed British colonialism, apartheid, and two world wars in the years since.

Remembering her childhood days, Johanna said we lived so well on the farms. There were no problems. But recalling one of the times, she said, once there was a plague of locusts on the farms. She said we could catch and consume some of them. It was as if you were consuming meat. We would simply fry them and eat them just like that.

What is the secret to her long life?

In today’s time, people’s eating and drinking habits have completely spoiled. Every food we eat contains chemicals that harm our health. Doctors claim that this chemical causes serious problems that affect a lot of people. Last week, Johanna Mazibuko, a South African resident, celebrated her 128th birthday. It is believed that she is the world’s oldest lady. She claims that perfect food is necessary for a long life.

She also said that a combination of fresh milk and wild spinach has helped her reach the ripe old age of 128 and says that while she does eat modern food now, she sometimes misses the simplicity of her childhood.

Johanna said she struggles with her hearing but is still independent enough to move around her house and watch people out the window.

Johanna Mazibuko’s personal life

She regularly sits and recalls childhood memories, with certain years being simpler to recollect than others. She said she was married to a man who was much older than her. His first wife had passed away. He was an independent individual. That man was quite kind to me and made me forget about my past life. I had everything I needed, she said. She and Stawana had seven children, two of whom are still alive today. She also has 50 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He owned cows and a horse carriage. She would milk the cows and sell the butter. Johanna made a living doing domestic work for farm owners after she married and continued to work over the years. However, as she grew older, she hired Thandiwe Wesinyana as a caregiver.

Since 2001, the two have been living together and have become close friends. Thandiwe said I can’t sleep when I am not next to her. When I come back, she will also say she couldn’t sleep. She says she just sits by the window looking at the gate and wondering when I will be back.

Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant becomes third-youngest player to reach 3000-run mark in IPL

Rishabh Pant-led team moved at 9th position after registering their win over LSG.



The Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant reached an incredible milestone on Friday as he became the third-youngest player to reach 3,000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In his team’s second win of the year over the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the left-hander smashed an incredible 41 runs off of 24 balls. The 2020 runners-up also moved up from the bottom of the rankings to the ninth slot with this win.

With the final delivery of the 12th over, Pant reached the milestone when he hit Marcus Stoinis for a four. He showcased an impressive range of shots, such as his leg play and scoops over third man. After Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill, the skipper of DC was the third-youngest player to surpass 30,000 runs.

Surprisingly, among the 25 batters who have scored more than 3,000 runs, he has the third-highest strike rate (148.4), just behind AB De Villiers (151.68) and Chris Gayle (148.96).

After Kuldeep Yadav returned, the DC bowlers did a fantastic job of destroying the LSG batting lineup at 94/7 with three wickets taken. But teenager Ayush Badoni’s bravery, who scored 55 off 35 deliveries, helped the Super Giants put up a respectable 167/7 total on the board.

The DC batters took over at that point and led this run-chase without any problem. In the seventh over, having lost both of their openers at 63 runs, debutant Jake Fraser-McGurk teamed up with Rishabh Pant to register his first-ever IPL half-century. Fraser-McGurk hit 4 fours and 5 sixes in his 55 runs for 35 balls. Meanwhile, KL Rahul stumped Rishabh Pant off a delivery from Ravi Bishnoi as he was very close to his half-century at 41.

However, the duo had contributed to making sure DC would easily meet the target; they also became the first team to beat Lucknow this year by successfully chasing a total of more than 160 runs.
