Moses Kuria reacts to Cabinet reshuffle

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria has reaffirmed his commitment to serving the people of Kenya, regardless of his cabinet assignment under President William Ruto.

Kuria, who previously served as Trade CS for almost a year, has recently been appointed to lead the Public Service Ministry in changes announced on October 4, 2023.

During the launch of the Garissa County Aggregation and Industrial Park, Kuria shared his perspective on the cabinet reshuffle and his determination to continue his service to the nation.

He initially considered sending his Principal Secretary to preside over the event, but a conversation with Garissa Governor Nathif Jama led him to personally attend the historic launch.

Kuria stated:

“The government never sleeps and keeps on working, regardless of where we work. The Cabinet has a duty to assist the president in delivering his duties. Now, I will be in the Public Service docket, handling service delivery, and performance contracts. But even if I was given the Gender docket, I would still do it exceptionally because even the women want to be served, and all Kenyans need effective service delivery.”

Reflecting on his achievements during his tenure as Trade CS, Kuria highlighted the launch of 15 industrial parks and efforts to boost local manufacturing through international agreements.

He expressed pride in the progress made during his time in office and expressed optimism about the future.

“I leave this ministry with my head held high,” Kuria stated.

“I am a very motivated person, and I am very proud that some dreams can come true. I know our dream will not die.”

Rebecca Miano now replaces Moses Kuria at the Ministry of Investments, Trade and Industry.

She previously served at the Ministry of East African Community, the ASALs and Regional Development.

Kuria’s year long stint in Cabinet has not been without controversy. He was accused of using foul language towards journalists on Twitter and later challenged Kenyans who believe the price of oil is high to ‘sink their own wells’.

Notably, President Ruto left him out of meetings with US Delegations in Nairobi and New York.
