Flash: ‘Oldest Man On Earth’ Mohammed bin Zarei Of Saudi Arabia Dies At 154

A Saudi man dubbed “the dean of centenarians” died in the Gulf Kingdom this week at the age of 154 years, nearly four years after his name was listed in Guinness as the oldest living man in the world.

Mohammed bin Zarei died of old age at a hospital in the tiny village of Sadr Ayad near the southern town of Nammas, leaving behind more than 180 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He had 10 wives and had told a local TV station that he was looking for a new wife at the age of 150 after all his wives died.

“Bin Zarei died at hospital this week….he was 154 years old…the man had seen all the kings that ruled Saudi Arabia,” one paper said.

Bin Zarei hit headlines when the Saudi satellite TV news channel Alarabiya broadcast a film about him a few years ago, during which he said he was in a good health. The programme presenter, Saud Al Khalaf, called him “the dean of centenarians”.

When he was 150 years old, his name was entered in Guinness book of records as the oldest living man on earth, according to the report.
