Guinness World Record nominates Kenyan chef to break record

Mombasa based Chef has been nominated by the Guinness World Record to attempt to break the world record for most hours spent cooking.

Maliha Mohammed, 36 is aiming to cook for 75 hours non-stop to break the current record held by Rickey Lumpkin from California, USA who cooked for 68 hours 30 minutes and one second in December 2018.

Pwani oil will sponsor her to cater to all her expenses in the competition which is set to take place in August 2019, as well as preparations for the event.

Rajul Malde, Pwani Oil’s Commercial Director, said the company had seen the plight of Chef Maliha in the local media last month, where she called upon well-wishers to support her to bring the title to Kenya and saw it as an opportunity to help develop local talent.

“We are excited to be part of Chef Maliha’s journey to break the Guinness World Record and bring the title to Kenya. Further, it is our hope that the support we give helps her realize her potential as a chef,” said Mr Malde.

“I am grateful for the opportunity, I am looking forward to breaking this world record and have been investing my own resources to ensure that I will be able to bring this record home,” said Chef Maliha.

She is self-taught and currently works as a chef for a leading non-governmental Organization based in Mombasa.

The Guinness Book of World Records is a reference book published annually, listing world records both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.
