Edward Alukuma, a man who has made a name from his rather unexpected ability of eating food meant for at least four or five guys, has said he no longer eats as much because of the economy. Alukuma from Shinyalu eats 12 kgs worth of maize flour in a single day and he believes it’s a talent because not anyone can do it. “To me, it’s a talent. Let not people think I eat all that food every day since not only do I have kids to school but also two wives to take care of. The high cost of living has forced me to stop eating 12 kg of ugali in a day as I have to take care of my responsibilities and a father and husband,” he said while speaking to a local publication. Bets The 38-year-old, who earns a living repairing bodabodas at Shinyalu market, said that sometimes people doubt his abilities and he asks them to place bets. He said that at one time, he consumed 6kgs in just 6 minuets. “Many people don’t believe I can consume such large quantities of ugali and I encourage them to place bets. If I finish the ugali under the set time I walk away with the money,”Alukuma told Pambazuko. With such talent, maybe Padi Wubonn might have included him in his video “Ugali”.
