The late Mark Makumbi was laid to rest on Saturday afternoon in Ssumbwe, Wakiso district with hundreds paying their last respect to the fallen hero despite the heavy rains.
Mark Makumbi left a big gap in the sports and music industry having been one of the most experienced in both fields.
The CBS radio sports presenter and kadongo kamu host at Bukedde Tv passed on at his home in Sentema last Thursday after suffering another setback in his struggle against cancer. He has been under palliative care at his home on advice of doctors at the Mulago Cancer Institute where he was admitted for several months.
Makumbi started his sports career at radio Sapentia before joining CBS as a sports commentator and kadongokamu presenter as well.
He also started presenting Kadongokamu on Bukedde Tv every Sunday before embarking on starting a career in that particular kind of music with songs such as Flower, Endaga Butonde, Ku Bombi, and others.
