NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 1- A funeral committee has been constituted to make burial arrangements of the late George Magoha, following the burial of his younger brother, Richard Magoha, on Saturday last week.
The spokesperson for the family and funeral committee and the former Basic Education and Early Learning Principal Secretary Julius Jwan on Wednesday said that the meetings are on course, so as to ensure that they accord the late a befitting sendoff.
The committee according to Jwan includes family members, Magoha’s colleagues and friends in the former and current administration, as well as in academia and the medical field.
“A funeral committee has been constituted and is meeting to finalize arrangements. Funeral arrangements are proceeding apace, particularly after the interment of Magoha’s younger brother,” Jwan stated.
Jwan also expressed the family’s gratitude for the support they have received from President William Ruto, former President Uhuru Kenyatta and Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
Magoha’s burial date hasn’t been officially announced, but some members of the family had hinted that it might be on the 11th of February.
The former Education Cabinet Secretary passed on on January 24, 2023, after suffering a cardiac arrest.
He collapsed at home before he was rushed to Nairobi hospital, where he was announced dead.
His death came at a time when the family was preparing to bury his brother who had passed on recently.
The late Professor has been mourned by many as a man of integrity and public servant who was passionate with his work.
He was a family man with a wife, Odudu Barbara Magoha and one son namely Michael Magoha.
