The oldest man in history has died, and it is said that he is 127 years old.
Natabay Machete, from Eritrea In Africa, he died on Monday in his remote village of Azefa.
His family is now calling on the Guinness World Records to officially recognize him as the oldest person ever to live.
The Guinness World Records have been contacted by Mr. Natabay’s grandson, There Natabay, who has provided evidence of the official document of his birth.
Church records show the birth certificate of the year of Baptism in 1894.
But his family actually believes he is older because he believed that he was baptized when the priest came to their remote village ten years after he was born.
Zere told BBC Trigrinya that the Guinness World Records are verifying the information he told about his grandfather’s longevity.
He told the press that “patience, generosity, and a happy life” is the secret of Mr. Natabay’s longevity.
Zere added that his grandfather was an “extraordinary man” who was not only compassionate but also diligent.
Natabay had a long relationship with his wife after getting married in 1934. His wife died in 2019 at the age of 99.
He spent most of his life as a herder and owned many cows, goats and bees.
In 2014, on Natabay’s 120th birthday, the entire village reportedly celebrated a special occasion with him.
