Here, the medical fraternity paid homage to Magoha, who was one of them and a urologist by specialisation.
His family through the speaker of the late minister’s funeral arrangement committee Julius Jwan told journalists on Friday that Magoha’s the burial will be preceded by a string of three-day-long events.
The funeral steering committee has outlined a list of activities that will take place in Nairobi and Siaya County before the late professor is laid to rest.
Armed with traditional musical instruments and regalia, Magoha’s in-laws gave him a befitting send-off the Nigerian way.
