A burial committee to spearhead the burial arrangements of the late former Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) George Magoha has been formed.

Family spokesperson Julius Jwan said the committee consists of Magoha's family members, friends, former colleagues, and government representatives.

"A funeral committee has been constituted and is meeting to finalize arrangements.

"The committee includes family members, Prof. Magoha’s colleagues and friends in the former and current administration and his colleagues in the academia & medical field," Jwan said in a statement on Wednesday, February 1.

At the same time, Jwan said the family has greatly received support from Kenyans, particularly President William Ruto, retired President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

"The family has continued to receive overwhelming support with many visitors, among them local and international dignitaries, paying courtesy calls at his home. At the same time, many messages of condolences have been received, signifying the high regard in which Prof. Magoha was held.

"The family is grateful for the support it has received from H.E. President William Ruto, former President, H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta and
former Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga," Jwan stated.

Magoha’s brother buried

He further said the burial arrangements have kicked off in earnest following the internment of Magoha’s brother Richard Magoha who was laid to rest on Saturday, February 28.

"Funeral arrangements are proceeding apace, particularly after the interment of Prof. Magoha’s younger brother, the late Prof. Richard Magoha, on Saturday last week.

"The family deeply appreciates the messages of condolences and the overwhelming support accorded by well-wishers at this difficult time.

"Further details will be provided on Friday morning during a press briefing
at the family residence in Nairobi," he added.
