Kenyans are known for breaking running records almost effortlessly, and now another Kenyan has been added to the record books. It’s not for what you think, though!
Mombasa-based Kenyan chef Maliha Mohammed has broken the Guiness World Record for longest time spent cooking nonstop. She set the record on Sunday, 18 August 2019, by cooking for 75 hours and preparing 400 recipes. The previous record for nonstop cooking was 68 hours by a US chef in 2018.
Before the final competition for breaking the record, chef Maliha had done a trial run in July by cooking 200 meals in 54 hours.
She received massive online support under the #BringTheRecordHome with everyone cheering her on up to the final hour.
WE HAVE A NEW WORLD RECORD!!
