The Obituary below is that of a great teacher who taught many at the University of Nairobi Chiromo Campus.
Those that studied in the 70’s and 80’s at the department of Bio-Chemistry, may recall the famous Dr. Mugo whose voice would later be heard after lectures especially in the evening Kikuyu channel of the voice of Kenya.
He was an authority on all the common trees found in Kenya, and could name all while stressing their relevance to the Kikuyu Culture and traditions.
Though soft spoken, he was a genius who never made any headlines in politics or in social life and many completely forgot him until recently when he was seen at the daughters funeral the late Njeri Mugo of USA.
Just by going by the funeral program at this time, Dr Mugo was an in law to the famous Githae’s of Baricho.
Dr. Njuguna Mugo will be remembered by the many he taught to become what they are today and we believe that they will pause for a moment wherever they may be across the globe, to remember this unsung hero who silently retired and thereafter kept a low profile.
Dr. D.K. Gitau
