Message of Condolence
The university of Nairobi has learnt with deep sorrow and regret of the untimely death of the late Prof. Gilbert Edwin Meshack Ogutu on Sunday, February 16, 2020. The late Prof. Ogutu was an Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Nairobi.
Professor Ogutu joined the University as a Tutorial Fellow on December 1, 1978 and rose through the ranks to the level of Professor; a position he held until his untimely demise. While serving at the University of Nairobi, Prof. Ogutu was a stickler for procedures and always did them with due diligence and tried to ensure that everyone followed them to the letter.
The late prof. Ogutu was a proud member of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies where he served with love and dedication for over 40 years. He was liked by many and had a very good way of using his language.
During this time of mourning and deep sorrow, on my behalf and that of the entire University of Nairobi community, I wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to you family, relatives and friends of Gilbert.
We pray to God to give you grace and strength at this most difficult time. May the Almighty God rest his soul in eternal peace.
Prof. S.G. Kiama
University of Nairobi
