Haiti - Petit-Goâve : On the eve of her «127 years» Mrs. Jamba celebrates the new year
Wednesday January 1st, at the 8th communal section of Petit-Goâve, 15 graduating students, members of the "Force Jeunesse" group and Prosper Charles, President of "1804 Institute for haitian studies" who came specially from the United States for this event, passed New Year's Day with the oldest woman in Haiti : Madame Bénicia Souffrant better known as "Madan Jamba" (born in Verdier, a dwelling in the 8th section, January 17, 1893 https: // https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26800-haiti-social-126th-anniversary-of-madan-jamba-the-haitian-dean.html ) which will celebrate its 127th anniversary on January 17.

The visitors celebrated with "Madan Jamba" a double event, the new year and the independence day of Haiti by fraternally sharing with her, the "joumou soup" (Giramon) of January 1, 2020, served in the tradition in "kwi" (calabashes)

Slamers from Port-au-Prince chanted very beautiful texts and a band from the area made everyone dance.

If the age of "Madan Janba" is established and officially recognized by international bodies, she would then become the dean of humanity. In January 2019, Rector Jacky Lumarque of Quisqueya University said "[...] We are in contact with the national archives so that we can obtain irrefutable evidence. We are on the right path. We have a copy of the birth certificate of the twin sister of "Madan Jamba"."

Remember that since July 22, 2018, the date of Chiyo Miyako's death, the dean of humanity is the Japanese Kane Tanaka, born on January 2, 1903 and aged 117 years
