Mr Zere told the broadcaster that church records, including his grandfather’s birth certificate, say that he was born in the same year he was baptized in 1894, which would make him 127 years old at the time of his death.
하나, the family of Natabay Tinsiew claim that he was actually born 10 years earlier in 1884, and that he was actually baptised 10 years later when a priest came to their village.

Father Mentay, a Catholic priest who served in Azefa for seven years, confirmed that local records show Mr Natabay was born in 1894, saying that he was present when Azefa village celebrated his 120th birthday in 2014.
Mr Zere said that he had already contacted Guinness World Records to validate the official documents of his grandfather’s birth, and was waiting for a response.

The Eritran worked as a herdsman, and owned many cattle, goats, honey bees and during his life has seen give generations of his family grow up.
Mr Zere told BBC Tigrinya his grandfather would be remembered as ‘an extraordinary man’ who was kind, caring and hardworking.
