Zake Muluzi named Scotland’s 3rd strongest man

Former President Bakili Muluzi’s 26-year-old son, Zake, is Scotland’s third strongest man following a recent competition and the young man, knick-named “Malawi’s Monster” is now eying World Strongest Man feat.

In an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana) via email, Muluzi, who lives in Inverness in the highlands of Scotland, said he emerged from 16 athletes who made it to the finals from regional qualifiers.

“This was my first ever attempt at this sport which surprised a lot of people,” explained Muluzi.
“I have been training for this sport for 6 months and by scooping 3rd position at Scotland’s Strongest Man I have qualified for UK/Britain’s strongest man which will be held in Belfast and it will be televised on national TV.”

The Scotland’s Strongest Man Finals involved six activities namely, Dead Lift, log Lift, Human wheelbarrow, Car walk, Loading Medley, and Atlas stones, according to Muluzi.

“In Dead Lift I managed to lift 350kg, in Log Lift – also known as overhead press – I managed to lift a personal best of 160kg which became the Scottish new record,” explained the 3rd Scottish Strongest Man.

He added: “In Human Wheelbarrow, I had to push a purpose-built wheelbarrow with people in it weighing 500kg, while In Car Walk, a real car was strapped to our shoulders weighing 450kg and we had to carry it over a distance of 20m.”

The Loading Medley activity required the contesters to carry 4 implements each weighing 120kg over a distance of 10m and load them on to a platform; while in Atlas Stones the athletes had to load stones ranging from 130kg to 200kg onto platforms.

“Throughout the day you got points in each of the events depending on your performance,” Muluzi explained, adding, “I’m impressed with my performance so far and hopefully, I’ll continue to do so at the forthcoming UK/Britain’s Strongest Man competition.

“I hope to build on this achievement and move towards competing in the World’s Strongest Man competition – that’s my ultimate goal.”

Muluzi said his favorite sport had always been American football but seeing that he was naturally strong and always went to the gym, he thought of giving it a go and participated in the Scotland’s Strongest Man competition which gave him reasons to move on.

  19. Thitherward Wendo says:

    So Zake Muluzi is Scotland’s Third-Strongest Man. Many Scots think that Nicola Sturgeon is their Strongest Woman. She is tiny compared to Zake. I guess the the criteria used to judge strength in men and women are different.

    A strong woman is expected to be able lead a country while a strong man is expected to be able to lift 350kg.

    A strong woman cannot be replaced with a fork-lift truck; a strong man, on the other hand . . . .

    He all had the nutritous food in Malawi while 99% percent of Malawian povos designed by the greedy system could not afford a decent meal.That’s the only thing that he can do in Scotland apart from attending classes in lifting heavy metals and become a bodyguard for his aging father.Nanga bambo kukhala ndi kukhala ndi 1.7 billion kwacha mdziko losauka ungadyenso ka kapenta?
