Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina — As confirmed by, Mrs. Ajka Lokmić, a claimant for the title of the oldest living person in Bosnia and Herzegovina, celebrated her 110th birthday on May 4th.

Mrs. Lokmić claims to have been born in Šamac, near the border of present-day Croatia, on May 4th, 1914. She lost both of her parents at the age of 3, and her relatives subsequently brought her to Sarajevo. She married Nurije Lokmić, and the couple went on to have four children: Zumreta, Zineta, Nurudin, and Šemsudin. Her husband owned a bakery, while she was a housewife.

She has always been a devout Muslim, praying (Fard) and fasting throughout her entire life. From the age of seven until she reached 100, she fasted every Ramadan. However, in her centenarian years, health and age no longer allow her to practice religious obligations and customs. At the age of 109, she was reportedly having a hard time remembering some of the Surahs.

Today, she was visited by the Mayor of the Municipality of Stari Grad, Irfan Čengić, to celebrate her birthday along with her family. She is potentially the oldest woman to have ever lived in the country, although her age has not been validated thus far.

The LongeviQuest team would like to extend our congratulations. We hope she enjoyed her day, and we wish her many more years of happiness.
