Popular Kenyan chef Maliha Mohammed has revealed the mistake that saw her disqualified from the longest-casting Guinness World Record (GWR).

Through her Instagram,  Maliha said she had been disqualified after disregarding certain guidelines issued by GWR.

“It is with much sadness to inform my family, friends, fans, sponsors, followers, and everyone who showed love and support towards my journey in November cooking marathon. Upon my manager’s advice, I have to let you know I was disqualified for 1 error made during my rest break.

I am not okay right now. I ask for your forgiveness to have let you all down . It wasn’t easy, but I know God has other plans for me in shaa Allah because what’s meant for you will simply find you,” Maliha announced.

The coastal based chef had made her second attempt to break the GWR for the longest cooking marathon by an Individual in November 2023.

She successfully hit 150 hours in the kitchen surpassing a cooking record of 119 hours 57 minutes, 16 seconds set by Ireland’s Alan Fisher on November 7.

The last year’s performance was her best compared to her previous record of 90 hours and 15 minutes set in 2019.

During the 2019 competition, she cooked 400 dishes, including traditional Swahili foods like coconut beans, fried fish, mandazis, mukimo, and githeri, and international cuisines like Indian biryani and chapatti.

GWR said that the disqualification was as a result of additional minutes that Maliha took, which were not accumulated.

“During the attempt at rest break sequence 7, additional minutes were taken which were not accumulated. Unfortunately, it is not permitted to make up rest break as it must only be accumulated,” GWR said in an email sent to Maliha.

“In the interest of fairness across all applicants, we can only approve a record when all of the guidelines have been adhered to fully,” GWR added.
