A great grandmother from Nyanga who turned 102 today says she still feels fit and healthy.
Minnie Mangesi was born in the village of Gqugesi in the Eastern Cape on the eighth of August 1918.
She got married in 1942 to Phakamile Mangesi.
The couple had seven children.
Today, the great granny has eleven
grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.
She says is also happy to be celebrating her birthday on the eve of Women's Day: "I'm happy to celebrate Women's Day and I wish that my grandchildren can take over from me.
Always be safe, be at home and be the mothers in their houses, the ones that got married.
The ones that have children, making sure that they grow up like me.
The way that I grew up, I'll always be a family member and love my siblings.""https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/117580883_3422066537845706_6790452905875646067_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=E4jtAAYP_wIAX-CCGNY&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=2fbdad313eb586a83d8099d733de1c2f&oe=5F54D188","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p168x128/117639500_3422066611179032_617546579790350318_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=UjfUluYcQfgAX9HMuni&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=203c4883656f88d0e2ddf9b9f0e3c663&oe=5F5403CD","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s206x206/117337877_3422066721179021_7301640606663692387_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=eFHRrRrSjdcAX8MI7rY&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=d8525e31f4226035b373a3c58812d5ca&oe=5F523583","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s200x200/117533522_3422066821179011_7999343844698489175_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=QG1pHs5uTdoAX8R45QC&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=8f7231289a5839831b3608a4b0e0e829&oe=5F54167D"
