Who Was George Magoha?

How Did George Magoha, “Former Education CS,” Pass Away?
Magoha died in Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday, January 24. He had had a heart attack. Michael Magoha, his son, and his wife all tried to help him.
Even though people tried to bring him back to life, he died in the hospital after collapsing at home and being taken there. Prof. Magoha was known for being tough and unwilling to give in when he was in charge as a Cabinet Secretary in the Education Ministry, where he was in charge of operations.
