Kisumu Boys’ High School Principal Peter Obwogo is dead.

Mr Obwogo passed on at Aga Khan Hospital on Saturday morning, a day after rumours of his death went round in social media.

Prof Charles Nyakiti, the chair of Kisumu Boys’ School Board of Management confirmed Mr Obwogo’s death, describing him as a leader whose demise has left a big gap in the education sector.

“We have lost a great teacher, a great organizer and a great manager,” said Nyakiti.

By the time of his death, Mr Obwogo ho had been in service for over 35 years was approaching retirement, and had declared to run for Matayos Constituency Parliamentary seat on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party ticket.

By the time of going to press, Professor Nyakiti said the school board and the principal’s family members were on their way to Mr Obwogo’s home in Busia to deliver condolence message.

He however castigated those who declared the teacher dead when he was still breathing.

“It is unfortunate that people begun talking about his death when he was alive. It is quite inhuman. But he has now rested, and we pray for the family,” he said.

He noted that the body would remain at Aga Khan Mortuary as the board coordinate with the family on the next funeral arrangements.
