2011-06-16 22:15

Johannesburg - The Guinness World Record for the longest boerewors ever braaied was broken in Mookgophong (Naboomspruit) on Thursday, Afriforum Youth claimed.

Guinness World Records has requested proof of the feat before it is made official, the civil rights organisation's national chairperson Charl Oberholzer said.

"Together with the girl band, Saarkie, the singer and comedian, Thys die Bosveldklong, and seven other farmers' associations [from the] Mokopane district, the organisation braaied a 514.5m long boerewors at the Windpomp Festival."

The previous record was 321m.

The boerewors weighed about 420kg and it took 40 people working together to put on the braai.

"There were a couple of close calls, but luckily the boerewors didn't break during the braai," Oberholzer said.

It was later distributed to old age homes in the district.

"It is important on Youth Day that the youth honours the older people and show that we care, even if it's only by attempting to break a boerewors braai record and providing a free plate of food."

      Why is the Korean wors too small? I have heard things about those asian men. You can't beat the size of a boerewors not even a black wors comes close.

    All this good happening while the ANC youth call out to Malema. Just goes to show, if you are part of the ANCYL, you have no character.
