Western Cape MEC for Social Development Albert Fritz, paid a courtesy visit to centenarian and Delft resident Fredie Blom, who celebrated his 114th birthday on Tuesday.

Fritz said the 114-year-old was an inspiration to the community because he was an example of how people should look after themselves.

Although yet to be verified by the Guinness World Records, at the age of 114, Blom is believed to be the oldest man alive.

And, although his age may have affected his hearing, Blom is still very handy around the house.

"He created the tiling on the floor this week," said his daughter, Jasien Blom.
