Immediate former Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha is dead. He was 71.

Prof Magoha breathed his last at the Nairobi Hospital this evening following a cardiac arrest.

More details to follow in our subsequent stories.

Meanwhile, Magoha had lost his younger brother on December 6, last year, and he was to be laid to rest on January 28.

The no-nonsense ex-Cabinet minister will be remembered for the many education reforms he instituted during his reign at the Ministry of Education and when he served as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Nairobi (UoN).

After leaving the Education docket late last year, the professor of medicine took a break before recently announcing that he had gone back to his first love: teaching.

He was to be a professor of medicine at Maseno University.

Magoha is survived by his wife and son.

May his soul rest in peace!
