Renowned actor Mzee Makanyaga, who featured on shows on Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) in the 1990s has passed on.
Makanyaga died on Tuesday afternoon, October 27, due to old age-related diseases at his Pumwani home, Nairobi County.
According to the Muslim customs, he will be buried tomorrow on Wednesday, October 28.
Mary Khavere (Mama Kayai), who worked with the deceased for years, said Makanyaga was a selfless person who was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who had a problem.
“Makanyaga was like a parent to me. There’s a time we used to dance traditional songs at a club called the Black Golden Stars. He was a very good drummist and he would make dancing easier and enjoyable. This was before we embarked on an acting journey,” Mama Kayai stated.
She encouraged fellow thespians to make contributions to the deceased in order to give him a proper send-off.
