The body of the younger brother of former Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha arrived in Kenya Tuesday night.
The body of Richard Alex Nyabera Magoha arrived aboard a KLM flight with about ten members of the family.
This was about six hours after Prof Magoha had died.
Witnesses said the plane with the body and family touched down at about 11 pm.
They had received the news of the death of Prof Magoha while on air.
They were distraught when they landed at the airport and were facilitated by government officials to move the body of Prof Richard to Lee Funeral Home where his elder brother Prof Magoha lay.
After a cardiac arrest, Prof Magoha died at Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday, January 24.
It was somber as those present received the body mourning two professors.
Prof Magoha passed on hours before the body of his younger brother, landed at JKIA in Nairobi, ahead of the planned burial on Saturday, January 28.
Prof Magoha was among the family members making the burial arrangements for his brother, who died in the US in December 6, 2022.
He, however, did not get a chance to pay his last respects to his brother.
Earlier plans were to bury Prof Richard on Saturday, January 28.
“Cortege will leave Agha Khan Funeral Home Kisumu, on Saturday, January 28, for a memorial requiem mass at Township Primary School Yala at 10:00 am followed by intermittent at his Umiru home in Yala, Gem, Sub-County,” his obituary read in part.
Prof Richard, 68 is survived by his wife, Janet Achieng Magoha, and three children Crystal Magoha, Ashley Magoha and Bernard Magoha.
