He finished his record attempt on Tuesday, April 30, at the Independence Square in Osu, Accra.

During breaks in his journey, Rafiwu’s team actively massaged his thighs and legs to alleviate any strain or discomfort.

The current record for the longest walking marathon was set by America’s Jesse Casteneda in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, in September 1976, after walking for 228.930 kilometers.
