Cooking for 75 hours sounds easy until you realize that #ChefMaliha had a menu with 400 meals.
But, what’s even more amazing is that she is using all that to raise awareness and to feed the less fortunate kids in Mombasa.
This woman is truly iconic.

John Demathew was there in the cassettes era, the cd era, the dvd era, the skiza tune era and still is even in this you tube craze era! You know why? He produced ever greens with a touch of modernity. He will forever remain in our hearts #RIPDemathew

I have always loved “Njata Yakwa” by John DeMathew, a song in which Murang’a County Woman Representative Hon. Sabina Chege acted as John DeMathew’s wife. You will be missed legend. #RIPDeMathew pic.twitter.com/NLubNlDDx3
