We regret to inform you of the death of former Education Cabinet Secretary, Professor George Magoha. On Wednesday, his family confirmed his death, leaving the entire education sector and the country in mourning.
Professor Magoha was a respected and renowned educationist who dedicated his entire career to the advancement of Kenya's education sector. He was the Cabinet Secretary for Education from 2019 to 2021, and his tenure was marked by significant improvements in the education system.
One of his most notable accomplishments was the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), which aimed to improve education quality in the country and provide a more holistic approach to learning. Professor Magoha was also instrumental in the creation of a digital curriculum aimed at bridging the digital divide in education.
Professor Magoha's death is a great loss to the education sector because he was not only a visionary leader but also a mentor and friend to many in the education community. He was a passionate education advocate who worked tirelessly to ensure that every child in Kenya had access to a high-quality education.
The education sector is not only poorer without him, but it also serves as a reminder of how much more work needs to be done to ensure that all children have access to high-quality education. It is a huge loss for the country, and his contributions will be greatly missed.
Professor Magoha's death is a loss not only to education but also to his family, friends, and loved ones. During this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers are with them. May his soul find peace.
Professor Magoha's death also comes at a time when the education sector is facing unprecedented challenges due to issues with the CBC transition. The closure of schools and the shift to online learning have highlighted the need for a more robust and resilient education system. Professor Magoha's leadership and guidance would have been invaluable in navigating these challenges.
As we remember Professor Magoha, let us also remember his legacy and the impact he had on the education sector. His dedication and commitment to improving the education system will be remembered for years to come. We must continue to work towards building an education system that is inclusive and equitable and provides every child with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Rest in peace, Professor Magoha. You will be forever missed.
