Kibaki termed Magugu as a man of few words but lots of action and will be remembered for his dedication and generosity.
“His death is a loss to the nation he served with dedication and enthusiasm. He was a pragmatic leader and a parliamentarian who performed his duties with diligence and was a source of motivation,” the message said.
Moi said Magugu’s death was not only a loss to the family but also the entire nation, adding that he was a passionate businessman and politician.
“He served Kenyans will dedications and always gave the best he could,” he said. Magugu died last Saturday after a long illness.
