A 98-YEAR-OLD Bulawayo woman is appealing for assistance to buy food and meet other medical expenses as she has no source of income.

Tsinyeko Dungeni from Emganwini said she needs money to buy pampers, which she cannot afford.

A visit by Sunday Southern Eye to her home established that Dungeni still has good eyesight, sharp memory, and a good sense of hearing. Her granddaughter Sihle Mthunzi, who is responsible for her upkeep, said Dungeni has been using pampers for the last three years and was on a special diet, which they were struggling to finance.

"She likes amawoso (braai meat), I think this is due to the strength of her teeth because at 98 she has not lost any of her teeth," Mthunzi said.

"She has been using pampers for the past three years and I am appealing to organisations to assist me with any of these items."

Ward 26 shadow councillor Mzamo Dube said it was a blessing to have such old people in the community.
