George Magoha had premonitions about his death prompting him to issue two instructions to his wife, Barbara Magoha.
Doctor Walter Mwanda, a close friend of Magoha’s, revealed to the media on Tuesday, January 24, that Magoha had premonitions about his death; revealing that the former Education CS had instructed his wife to call his son and daughter-in-law.
However, he did not indicate the conversation George Magoha had with his son before he collapsed at home.
Mwanda also recalled that later, Magoha’s widow would provide further information about his final directives to the general public.
“He had a premonition and told his wife that his time had come and he was happy. He then asked her to call the son and the daughter-in-law,” Mwanda stated.
He added that the former CS also asked his wife to call him (Mwanda) so that they could speak.
The medic revealed that he was attending to a patient at Kenyatta National Hospital when he received a call from Magoha’s wife.
“At about 3 pm she called me and told me that she needed me urgently. I asked a doctor to take over the patient’s examination and got into my car and left for his home,” he stated.
Notably, as stated by Mwanda, Magoha’s directive to keep the son close him during his final moments nearly offered him a second chance at life.
The medic reported that after the father passed out for the first time at home, the son, a doctor, revived him.
“I found him seated and proceeded to take his blood pressure. As I was recording, he slipped from his sitting position, so we carried him to the son’s car.
“He suffered a collapse and was resuscitated back by his son, a medical doctor. However, a few metres to the casualty section, he collapsed again,” he stated.
Magoha suffered a cardiac arrest at his home on January 24. Mwanda indicated that the former CS collapsed a total of four times.
The former education CS died while receiving treatment at Nairobi Hospital. His body was transferred to the Lee Funeral Home.
