Professor Julius Ngoh has paid tribute to his brother the late Zacharie Nkwo for his bravery in fighting for good journalism and good causes. The younger brother of the late legendary CRTV football commentator Zacharie Nkwo has said he was so close to his brother so much so that he considered him as “Uncle Zach” just like what others used to call him. He also said Zachary Nkwo used to call him Prof.
He observed that the death of his brother is devastating to the family. In an exclusive interview with Cameroon News Agency, Professor Ngoh said “In fact I am completely devastated because I never expected him to leave us so soon. We have been very close especially after the untimely departure of our sister in 2012 and the death of his daughter. I can say that he never recovered from that. And in spite of the fact that I was transferred to Bamenda whenever I am here I make sure I spend time with him. Those who are in Bokwaongo know that he was a very simple man and that is why one family gave him their daughter who was with him in the hospital. He was very understandable and love to share.”
Uncle Zach as he is fondly called went to Roman Catholic Mission, RCM primary school in Bota, Limbe then attended Saint Joseph College Sasse where he obtained his Ordinary Level certificate before going to the College of Arts, Science and Technology, CCAST Bambili where he achieved the GCE Advanced Level certificate.
He then got enrolled in the Advanced School of Mass Communication, ASMAC from where he started his professional career.

However Zachary Nkwo played in Public Works Department, PWD Bamenda, Kilo Football Club of Bamenda and DEVCam FC in Limbe. Prof NGOH also said their Dad was not aware of all Zach’s football careet because he wanted his children to have the best of education. The Nkwo family hails from IVOA ll in Efoudoula Sub division in the Centre region.
