Life and times of Magoha: The journey of late Prof. George Magoha in the public service
Prof. George Magoha collapsed at his Nairobi home at around 3pm on Tuesday, January 24, and was taken to the Nairobi Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Magoha died at the age of 71.
His friend Prof. Walter Mwanda, who is a medical doctor at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), said at the Lee Funeral Home on Tuesday night that he received a call from Dr. Barbara Magoha, the widow of the former Education Cabinet Secretary, informing him that Prof. Magoha needed urgent medical attention.
Mwanda said he rushed to the ex-minister’s Nairobi home, and together with his (Magoha’s) family members, took him to Nairobi Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Below is Mwanda’s narration as told to journalists outside the Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi, where Magoha’s body was moved.
