Details of Moses Kuria’s letter to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria’s letter to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua highlighted ten significant claims, including concerns about Gachagua’s absence from State House meals.

Kuria’s letter, containing serious allegations against the deputy president, was made public following its revelation on Sunday June 16, 2024 where Kuria alleged that the Deputy President has been exerting pressure on President William Ruto.

Tensions have emerged within the Kenya Kwanza Alliance as escalated by Moses Kuria’s provocative letter to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

In the letter, the Public Service CS raised ten specific issues that he urged Gachagua to address, aiming to clarify his stance on promoting unity within the Mt. Kenya region.

Kuria alleged that the deputy president had stopped taking tea during State House meetings due to concerns about potential poisoning.

He questioned what implications this decision might have for Cabinet Secretaries attending meetings at Gachagua’s Karen home.

“Now you have refused to even have a cup of tea in State House, saying you fear you will be poisoned. Make me understand how you now expect us to feel safe coming to your Karen residence for Cabinet Committee meetings. Won’t you also poison us now that you have a good idea of how poisoning works?” Kuria stated.

He also alleged that the deputy president had asked President William Ruto for KSh10 billion to address protests in Mt Kenya against high living costs.

“When the cost of living was high and there was discontent on the ground, you went to the president and demanded that he give you cash of Ksh 10 billion to go fix the ground in Mount Kenya. Since it was denied, you now throw tantrums. How would the cash have benefited the people of Mount Kenya?” he asked.

Kuria’s letter alleges that Gachagua played a role in his dismissal from the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Industry.

The Public Service CS claimed the deputy president was lobbying the president to remove him from office since the Cabinet appointments were announced.

In his statement, Kuria accuses the deputy president of persistently pushing for his dismissal. When direct removal failed, Kuria claimed Gachagua succeeded in transferring him from the Ministry of Investments, Trade, and Industry.

According to Kuria, his initiatives in poverty reduction, job creation, and wealth generation had posed a threat to Gachagua’s objectives.
