Didmus Barasa Questions Government’s Involvement in Magoha’s Burial Plan
Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has questioned the Kenya Kwanza Government’s decision to take full charge of the late George Magoha’s burial.
In a statement on Saturday, January 28, Barasa wondered why the Government would help in the burial plans arguing that the former CS was a rich man.
“Why would the Government help the family of Prof. George Magoha, Just asking on behalf of Kenyans. This is a Rich family and the good Professor who rested has children and family members whom he assisted get employment left right and centre throughout his life when he was holding positions of influence,” Barasa stated.

The UDA lawmaker asked the William Ruto-led government to channel the funds to needy children in Siaya County or help poor Kenyans to clear their hospital bills.
“He rested without a huge hospital bill and with a Premier medical cover unlike many hustlers who have rested in different funeral homes and their bodies are detained, title deeds, logbooks are being demanded before release.
“All that the Professor’s family needs is food and they can afford it. If the cash is available the Government should pay fees for needy children from Siaya County or Clear medical bills for Kenyans who are enslaved in hospitals for failure to pay medical bills,” he stated.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua announced on Saturday that the Government would provide a military chopper to airlift the former Education CS’s body to Siaya County ahead of his burial.
“The family did request that the Government help airlift the body and we have agreed and the Kenya Defence Forces will provide a military helicopter to take the body home together with members of the family on the Friday preceding the Saturday burial.
The DP also stated that the government would provide tents, chairs and relief food for locals residing in the areas surrounding the former CS’s home.
“The family also requested we provide the tentage and chairs and all that goes with it to cater for the thousands of mourners on that particular day and that request has been acceded to.
“Over and above, our department of special programs will also provide food for the family and the mourners and in addition, we have also instructed that we provide food to all the residents of Gem,” Gachagua stated.
