Cameroon’s all-time best sports commentator, Zackary Tokoto Nkwo, has died at the age of 69 after a prolonged illness.

The death of the retired CRTV Staff who was based in Buea was announced early on Sunday the 4th of June 2017. Zackary Nkwo’s brother Professor Victor Julius Ngoh reportedly confirmed his death.

Uncle Zack as he was fondly called passed away at the Mount Mary Hospital in Buea, where he spent seven fruitless days seeking for medical redemption. The football family in Cameroon particularly sports reporters have received the news of Uncle Zack’s demise with mixing feelings. Many of them have been pouring out their tributes and condolences of social media platforms.

In 2012, the veteran sports commentator was honoured by sports journalists in Cameroon for his exceptional dexterity in sports reporting for decades. Uncle Zack was also voted overwhelmingly online as Sports Personality of the Year by sports journalists nationwide that same year.

As a student at CCAST Bambili, Zachary Nkwo played football with PWD Bamenda, whose president was then Public Works Department recruit, Peter Mafany Musonge.  He also played with Kilo’s Club as goalkeeper. The ace sport commentator’s fascinating life is the subject of a recent publication by Fon Echekiye titled “Zachary Nkwo’s Ultimate Commentary”.
