CS Moses Kuria’s unchanged profile details elicits reactions after cabinet reshuffle

Moses Kuria, the incoming Public Service Cabinet Secretary (CS), has left social media buzzing with speculation as he continues to maintain his profile picture from his previous role at the Ministry of Trade.

A quick examination of his official Twitter account reveals that Kuria’s profile picture still identifies him as the head of the Ministry of Investments, Trade, and Industry despite his recent transfer.

The puzzling choice to keep his old profile picture comes after an unexpected move by Kuria on Wednesday night, October 4, 2023.

Shortly after his reassignment from the Trade Ministry, he shared an image of Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua without providing any updated caption. Leaving the interpretation to the masses.

The motive behind this post remains unclear, but it is essential to note that Kuria and Deputy President Gachagua have recently had public disagreements.

In September, during a speech in Siaya County, CS Moses Kuria refuted Deputy President Gachagua’s statement that government positions were reserved for supporters of the Kenya Kwanza movement.

Kuria asserted that Kenya was for everyone, regardless of origin or political affiliation.

Despite these differences, Deputy President Gachagua has consistently maintained that he has no issues with CS Kuria and has dismissed calls for his dismissal from office.

CS Kuria also garnered attention when he predicted that fuel prices would continue to rise until February 2024, a statement that some Kenyans found disrespectful.

This prompted demands for his resignation or removal by President William Ruto.

However, Deputy President Gachagua quashed rumors of any animosity between him and the Trade CS, emphasizing their harmonious working relationship.

“I saw newspapers reporting yesterday that there is a problem on the mountain (Mount Kenya region) that I might fight with Moses Kuria. I’m the Deputy President; he is our worker. Can an employer fall out with his employee?” he posed.

Deputy President Gachagua affirmed that he would not allow Mr Kuria to be ousted from the government, dispelling any speculations of a rift between them.
