108-Year-Old Terengganu Woman Defies Age To Vote For The 15th Time
Despite her remarkable age of 108 and the challenges it brings, Munah Adam demonstrated unwavering determination as she cast her vote for the 15th time at the SK Pasir Raja polling station in Terengganu
Munah, who uses a wheelchair, arrived at the polling station around 11am, 12 August.
She was accompanied by her son, Adnan Apil, 69. He shared that his mother was eager to participate in the electoral process after learning about the importance of voting for the people of Terengganu today.
Speaking with Berita Harian, Adnan shared his mother's spirited request, "When I asked her if she wanted to go and vote or not, she was very enthusiastic and asked me to take her to the polling station."
He proudly revealed that this marks the 15th time Munah has voted.
Munah's dedication to her civic duty has been unwavering
During the 2022 General Elections (GE15), she could walk independently to the polling station and cast her vote, showcasing her determination and active involvement in the democratic process.
Adnan shared some insight into his mother's life, mentioning that she was a picture of health until a fall from her bed last December left her unable to walk. However, her spirit remained strong, her vision clear, and she continued to engage in conversations and even shares jokes with her family, according to the report.
When asked about any advice or practices his mother follows, Adnan mentioned that his mother is like any other person but enjoys eating rice with traditional side dishes.
