UK mourns Prof George Magoha

UK, through the British High Commissioner to Kenya Jane Marriott, mourns the death of Prof George Magoha.

In a statement to the media, UK High Commissioner to Kenya Jane Marriott hailed former Education CS George Magoha for his instrumental role in advancing educational partnership.

“Prof George Magoha will be remembered fondly by all of us and for his central role in our education partnership,” she said. 

Jane Marriot also said George Magoha helped in connecting Kenyan and British students. 

“He connected Kenyan and British students, he will be greatly missed. Sending my condolences to his family,” she said.

Magoha died on Tuesday at the age of 71 after a long and illustrious career in medicine, academia, and public service.

According to a statement by The Nairobi Hospital, Magoha collapsed at home and was rushed to the facility, where he was pronounced dead after efforts to resuscitate him failed.

He leaves behind his wife Dr. Magoha and his son Dr. Michael Magoha. 

Prof Magoha was known as a tough-talking and no-nonsense CS during his time at the Education Ministry. 

His death comes barely a week after his appointment as a lecturer of medical surgery at the Maseno University School of medicine.

A no-nonsense scholar, the former CS will be remembered for his reforms in the ministry, especially in dealing with examination malpractices and indiscipline in schools.
