The late Makawa was an accomplished entrepreneur and owner of Alexander Hotels.

Macra director general Godfrey Itaye has confirmed about the death and expresses “great shock”.

Itaye said he confirmed the death with “great sadness.”

He said burial arrangements will be announced later.

May Her Soul Rest in Peace.
