Jacobs Mwase

Jacobs Mwase no more.

Malawian actor Jacobs Mwase better known as Zakaria has died, Malawi24 has learnt.

Reports indicate that he died in the morning of today after a long illness.

He died at Thyolo district hospital.

He was fondly known by the ‘Yao’ accent which he used in most of the plays and shows he took part in.

He mostly played the role of an old man who could cause havoc in the community by among other things threatening others with magic.

Malawi24 understands that earlier this year he was working on Palibe Chinsisi, a new movie series that is likely to give the other side of the artist as it dwells on where real life meets spirituality.

His death comes just months after the death of another renowned actor John Nyanga better known as Izeki.

MORE TO COME.

  1. kodi ine ndimwamwa tea kapena ndimamwa solution?… Am really very shocked by his sudden departure. zopano iwe ngani inali kuchipinda ukuyibweleza pa world kuti Shani?
    There is a lot to remind us of him. RIP till that joyful morning when the Trump shall sound

    • Am very much concerned with his death and the death of his fellow actor late John Nyanga may their souls rest in peace. These people have been the greatest teachers to the Malawians and some of our neighbouring country citizens. Not only teachers but also advisors , to all ages. My worry is that, who is been taught these skills among the youth? Here in South Africa Capetown we are so touched. May God take a good care of their families.
