Former Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has landed a new job at Maseno University. 

Magoha will now be a professor of Surgery at the School of Medicine. 

Maseno's School of Medicine was established in 2011. 

Before being appointed as Education CS in March 2019, he served as chairman of the Kenya National Education Council (KNEC) 

He also served as the University of Nairobi's Vice-Chancellor between 2005 and 2015. 

He was the face of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) for three years where he spearheaded changes made to the curriculum.

Magoha also ensured a 100 per cent transition to secondary school.  He was seen regularly moving from house to house in the slums to ensure pupils who completed primary education joined secondary schools.

In an interview with journalists in August 2022, Magoha hinted at going back to his clinic at the Nairobi Hospital. 

He serves as a urologist and treats diseases of the urinary tract at the clinic. 

"If you have problems passing urine, don't be afraid. You can visit my clinic at Nairobi Hospital. In fact, just show your press card and you might get special treatment," he told journalists.
