104 claps for Granny Anna of Ladysmith

104 claps for Granny Anna of Ladysmith

A very special lady is celebrating her birthday in Ladysmith today.

Anna Susanna Fouche

Anna Susanna Fouche is turning 104 today.

Family, friends and community members gather annually to wish her more life - but this year it's a little different.

Due to the lockdown, a few residents stood outside her gate and clapped 104 times.

Her eldest daughter, Anna Buys says her mom was a little sad that not everyone could come.

"She says she can't believe she reached the age that she has now. It's the first time that she's really felt old and she doesn't like the lockdown because nobody can come and see her."

Fouche, who is a mother of two, has five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
