Turning 100 is a feat not many people get to experience but a Pretoria grandmother has done it in style. Nomthandazo Beauty Sithole uploaded a pic collage of her now 100-year-old gorgeous grandmother to #ImStaying Facebook group.
Sithole's grandmother, born in 1920, looks nowhere near her age in the photos that were uploaded. Standing strong and looking absolutely amazing, this grandma has left mouths gaping as people cannot fathom that she had reached a century. Sithole uploaded the pictures with the caption:
"1920- 2020 today it marks 100 yearshappy birthday to my granny just take a look on how strong she is, she's still fresh. They have very strong genes from her mother's side. And that's why am #staying."
The post received over 3000 reactions and 1000 comments. The only thing confirming this fabulous grannies age is the birthday cake that accompanied the post. #ImStaying members commented in shock and with many congratulations.
