Kuria Targets Gachagua In Fresh Attack

Moses Kuria, the cabinet secretary for public services, made fun of deputy  president Rigathi Gachagua on Friday, despite persistent allegations that the  two have been at odds over their leadership struggle on Mount Kenya. Kuria retaliated against the Deputy President in a statement, this time using  King Charles III’s recent visit to the nation as justification for a swipe at Gachagua.

Kuria remarked, “Sasa venye King amerudi kwao, fake Kingpins you can take over.” CS Kuria has frequently held the Deputy President responsible for his problems.

For example, upon being transferred from the lucrative Trade docket to the Public Service Ministry, CS Kuria released a veiled statement accusing Gachagua of being the reason of his removal from the high-ranking position.Another incident that brought attention to the disagreement between the two was when CS Kuria disregarded Kenyans who were protesting over the exorbitant cost of fuel. CS Kuria had told Kenyans aggrieved by the high prices of fuel to dig their own wells instead of complaining every time.

In an attempt to emphasize that the costs were out of the government’s control,  he also forewarned Kenyans that fuel prices would rise by Ksh10 each month  until February 2024. But Gachagua, who had just returned to Kenya by plane, forewarned Kuria and  David Ndii, the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, about their comments,  advising them to desist from their patronizing tone and to stop talking down to  Kenyans. The arrogant remarks made by a few politicians, according to Gachagua, “do not,  in any way, reflect the official government position or that of President William  Ruto.” The administration is nonetheless cognizant of and sensitive to the difficulties  that Kenyans are currently suffering.

Similarly, on September 26, Gachagua and Kuria met behind closed doors at the DP’s Karen home in an attempt to diffuse their disagreement.Gachagua shared pictures he took with Kuria as a sign of solidarity. He did not, however, reveal the subject of their conversation.He made it clear that the government was eager to use ongoing communication with Kenyans to address their issues.”Our style of governance is ongoing engagement. We met with businesses from Kajiado County this evening with my younger brother, Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria,” Gachagua said.
