Tony Wamalwa was declared the winner after eating 2 kgs of ugali in 35 mins

Bungoma County is often in the news for various stories, but today it unveiled a potential champion when Tony Wamalwa demolished an impressive 2 kilograms of ugali in just 35 minutes.

The competition was organised by locals from the Marakaru area of Bungoma, without realising that a record would be broken in less than an hour.

According to Wamalwa's competitor, they had refrained from eating anything for several hours in preparation for this highly contested battle of consuming ugali with omena.

Wamalwa stated that they simply decided to organise the eating competition to determine the winner.

The event takes place annually during the planting season, and the champion usually receives maize seeds and fertilizer to use for planting.

It was a remarkable feat by Wamalwa, who demonstrated his prowess in devouring the traditional dish.

Wamalwa's competitor said that he had taken part in various competitions despite losing in the deeply heated competition.

The competition showcased the level of food culture and competition that exists in Bungoma County.

Wamalwa's impressive performance is a testament to the potential that exists in the county, not just in the realm of food but also in other areas such as sports, music, and academics.

A family in Vihiga County gained online attention when they asked for well-wishers to support them with food.

This request came after revealing that one of their own could consume 3 kilograms of Ugali per meal.

The mother expressed her concerns that their food supplies were running low due to the young man's constant appetite.
