Saparman Sodimejo, also known as Mbah Gotho (or Ghoto) (31 December 1870? - 30? April 2017), was an Indonesian longevity myth.
Gotho claimed to have been born in 1870, one of 11 children. He claimed to remember a sugar factory opening in 1880 during the Dutch colonial era, but could not remember anything else. He reportedly had four wives and four children.
Gotho lived in Sragen, Java, Indonesia, with his 46 year-old grandson. He spent most of his time listening to the radio. He died on 30 April 2017 at the claimed age of 146, having been admitted to hospital two days earlier.
