Popular radio personality, Tymon Makina who died on Saturday was laid to rest at West Park Cemetery in Bulawayo today.

Football personalities, friends, relatives and colleagues in the sports and journalism fraternity thronged West Park Cemetery in Bulawayo to lay to rest a celebrated sports caster Makina with many agreeing he has left a void difficult to fill.

Makina who was currently attached at Skyz Metro FM as a sports producer-presenter, broke his teeth in the broadcasting industry at ZBC in 1994 as a radio three, now Power FM as a disc jockey, using the name Tarzen Tee before moving to S FM radio where he gained popularity through the BP Check slot during the weekend Sunday soccer programme.

He endeared himself well with his fans due to his cool and composed moderation, managing to attract large followers to his shows.

“Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu” as he would close his BP Check show on S FM and “Mina zwi” as he did at Skyz Metro drive time sports show.

May his dear soul rest in peace.
