Kuria has in the last couple of days fired a series of tweets perceived to be in response to the second in command.
In his tweets, the CS insisted that his remarks on the cost of fuel were based on science and even went ahead to demonstrate how the same will rise in the coming months.
“As Minister responsible for the Private Sector mine is to advise business based on science not truthful voodoo,” Kuria said.
His tweets came just a day after the deputy president waded into the debate surrounding the high cost of fuel prices, with the former warning that the outbursts by some government officials do not reflect the government’s official position.
“You do not address your employer with arrogance. Do so with humility and decorum. Kenyans, like the rest of the world, are going through difficult economic times and leaders should address them with sensitivity and empathy.” DP Gachagua said.
As the two leaders from the vote-rich Mt Kenya region continue exchanging words, political analyst Herman Manyora has warned the second in command against a skirmish with CS Kuria.
In a statement on Thursday, September 21, Manyora said Moses Kuria is a grassroots leader who can easily mess up Gachagua’s chances of being the Mt Kenya kingpin.
“I would advise DP, Rigathi Gachagua to go slow on Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria. Kuria is a grassroots leader who can mess up his chances of being Mt. Kenya’s kingpin. Bwana Gachagua, ogopa Moses Kuria,” Herman Manyora said on X.
