Dorcus Mirembe, also known as Mama D, a famous Ugandan chef, has smashed the global record for continuous cooking as she attempts to achieve a new Guinness global Record.
She started cooking on December 23 and is hoping to finish by December 31.
Alan Fisher established the record in Japan from September 28 to October 3 with 119 hours, 57 minutes, and 16 seconds, breaking the previous record of 93 hours, 40 minutes, and 11 seconds held by Hilda Baci of Nigeria.
On Thursday, December 28, Mama D officially shattered this record, extending her cooking marathon over the set threshold.
Many Ugandans have flocked to her cooking spot to provide all kinds of help, from monetary to spiritual.
Government leaders, businessmen, and celebrities have all rallied around her via social media, and many others have paid her a visit in person at her restaurant near Kampala.
Several food companies have generously provided her with cooking equipment and other necessities.
She cooked for 119 hours and 57 minutes without taking a break or doing anything else.
