In her message, Maribe said she wanted to call him so they could laugh about something she did not mention, disclosing that he used to call her ‘Cousin’.
She added that the former Rugby player’s death is shocking as he wished for Makaka’s soul to rest in peace.
“I don't even know what to say. And I literally wanted to call you last week we laugh about something. This is so devastating Allan you can't just dim your lights like that. And you always called me cousin. Sleep well, tutaonana baadaye,” wrote Jacque Maribe.
