Born in June 28, 1982, Makaka started playing rugby at the defunct Ulinzi where he was part of the team that won the 2002-2003 National Sevens Circuit before joining Kenya Harlequin where he went on to win the Kenya Cup in 2008 with the giant rugby club in Kenya.

The Musingu High School alumni win was also part of the Quins team that won the 2005-2006 National Sevens Circuit.

Makaka, who had 57 appearances for Kenya Sevens on the Sevens World Series with 28 tries and 142 points, was also part of the Shujaa team to the 2005 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Hong Kong and the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia.
