MBAH Gotho says he has been preparing for death since he was 122 . . .

But his 146th birthday has come and gone – and he is still here!

Gotho, from Java, Indonesia, has official documents to show that he was born in 1870.

But since his claim has not been independently verified – because records from the 19th century are not reliable – his name does not appear in any record books.

Gotho has become very frail in the past few months and now has to be spoon-fed. He says the key to long life is patience.
