Tuesday, May 26, 2020 – Former Citizen TV news anchor, Jacque Maribe, has paid glowing tribute to former Kenya 7s Rugby player, Allan Makaka, who died in a road crash along Mombasa Road, on Friday last week.
Taking to Instagram, the disgraced journalist revealed that she wanted to call him so that they could laugh about something she did not mention, disclosing that he used to call her ‘Cousin’.
“I don’t even know what to say.
“And I literally wanted to call you last week we laugh about something.
This is so devastating Allan you can’t just dim your lights like that. “
“And you always called me cousin. Sleep well, tutaonana baadaye,” wrote Jacque Maribe.
Until his death, Makaka was the Business Manager in-charge of Hot 96 Radio.
He joined the SK Macharia owned media house in 2012 as a Business Executive and later became the Business Manager.
During his playing days, Makaka was known for his power and explosive speed.
He scored most tries for Kenya in the 2004-2005 World Rugby Sevens Series while having the most points at 86, the same year.
He also made 57 appearances for Kenya 7s on the Sevens World Series with 28 tries and 142 points.
He will be laid to rest on Saturday at his father’s home at Mukhonje Village, Kakamega County.
