California donut eating contest.

By ALLAN TAWAI

It was a day of celebration for many North Americans on Friday (June 1) as National Donut Day was celebrated across the country.

In Hollywood, some people took the celebration to the next level by competing in a donuts eating competition outside the TCL Chinese Theatre. The objective was to try and beat the world record of 55 donuts eaten in 8 minutes, set by eating champion Joey Chestnut.

Speaking to press, Lieutenant colonel Kyle Smith of salvation army said that the eating competition was meant to bring attention to the fact that the Salvation Army is seeking to help veterans by trying to raise a little bit of money to help them.

“We help in so many different ways but want to help the body, the mind and the soul. And we did it eating donuts.” Said Kyle Smith

Although Chestnut was absent from this year’s competition, rival competitive eater Matthew Stonie  scooped the prize but only managed to consume 48 donuts. He blamed his lack of donuts consumption on issues he had the night before.

“I was getting nose bleeds all night and the dry air in my room or something so it is what it is. I did the best I could.” “I’ve been around the block. I know how to eat food but you know, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been getting donuts and trying out different techniques, getting my palette used to the flavor and texture.

While Stonie seemed happy with his win, other contestants looked pained after the competition finished – and probably won’t touch another donut until this time next year.

Major League master of ceremony (MC) Sam Barclay said that Joey Chestnut is still the world record holder.

“Well the world record still stands at 55. Today the winner, Matthew Stonie ate 48 Bakemark donuts in just 8 minutes.”

Kenya Urban Roads Authority (Kura)

Kenya Urban Roads Authority (Kura) has bragged about the newly opened Waiyaki Way-Redhill link,  calling it a master piece.

The Sh3 billion dual carriageway starts from Waiyaki Way and passes through Kyuna, Spring Valley, Kitisuru and Peponi to end at Redhill.

It is supposed to give access to Westlands

Kura’s brag triggered anger from Kenyans who swiftly pointed out glaring design anomalies of the new road.

The road lacks space for non-motorized transport, signage, trees and many more.

Here is what Kenyans want fixed before it can be called a masterpiece.
