I recently spoke to Ken Mijungu and the former NTV presenter revealed some interesting facts about his life.
One of the most fascinating stories was his close friendship with the late Kenya rugby player Allan Makaka.
Ken was speaking about the biggest lesson that he had learnt this year saying that life is precious, explaining that the last time you speak to someone could be the last time you see them.
“Allan Makaka died two days after I had met him and we had spoken. We were very cool friends. I met when I gave him business and he also gave me business later on. That’s how our friendship transpired,” Mijungu said.
The former Kenya Sevens Rugby player died after his car rammed into a trailer along Mombasa road on Friday night.
Born on 28 June 1982, Allan was a former Kenya Sevens international and was part of the squad that played at the 2005 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Hong Kong and the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia.
He made a total of 57 appearances on the Sevens World Series,managing 28 tries and is ranked 21st overall amongst Kenya’s all time try scorers on the World Series.
Makaka, scored most tries for Kenya in the 2004-2005 World Rugby Sevens Series while having the most points at 86 the same year.
Until his demise, Makaka worked for Royal Media Services as the Business Manager in charge of Hot96.
The late player is survived by his widow, Lilian Muthama, and two children Liam Lijoodi Shisiali and Lyona Ndunge Shisiali.
