gogo kezia turns 100

Old Mutual will be flying gogo Kezia and her daughter to go see her sister whom she hasn't seen in 15 years.

Going all out to make a 100-year-old lady's wishes come true.

Gogo Kezia's friend Judy reached out to Tshego Modisane in hope of making the centenary birthday one to remember.

Gogo Kezia has not seen her sister, who lives in KwaZulu-Natal, in 15 years and one of her wishes is to go see her.

Azania Mosaka speaks to Modisane and Judy about their journey with gogo Kezia, as well as Old Mutual head of brand Thobile Tshabalala who has a surprise for her.

We have people who donated her a red velvet cake.

Tshego Modisane

Judy called me during the week and told me there is a lady turning 100 at church and she wanted to make it a big celebration. I spoke to Khabazela and we put it together.

Tshego Modisane

She's got a special request, she says she would really like to have a house of her own, even if it's three-bedroom house.

Tshego Modisane

I am overwhelmed to be in the presence of a 100-year-old. She is an incredible human being.

Judy, Gogo Kezia's friend

She is clued up on what is happening in the world.

Judy, Gogo Kezia's friend

Azania had the honour tell gogo Kezia about the surprise.

I am really happy, I didn't expect it happen but it has happened.

Gogo Kezia

I was very happy when they told me I am going to KZN.

Gogo Kezia

These are precious and special moments for us as a brand.

Thobile Tshabalala, Head of brand - Old Mutual

We acknowledge that this is the best way to celebrate her centenary.
