George Magoha Last Respect: Kenya Defence Forces to Airlift Ex-CS’s Body to Gem for Burial
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has said that the government has committed to helping George Magoha’s family to give the deceased a befitting send-off.
Gachagua said the government has charted a Kenya Defence Forces helicopter to ferry Magoha’s body to his resting place in Gem, Siaya County.
“The family did request that the government airlift the body, and we have agreed, 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,” Gachagua said.
The second in command also disclosed that the government will provide tents, seats and other essentials to host the thousands of mourners who will troop to the family on the burial day.
“The family also requested that we help in providing the tentage and other things to cater for thousands of mourners on that particular day,” he said.
