Moses Kuria dismisses claims he plans to resign as CS

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria on Friday dismissed allegations that he planned to resign from his current government role.

The outspoken CS, in a statement, flagged the post alleging his impending resignation as fake news from a fake X account.

While clarifying the matter, CS Kuria urged Kenyans not to be misled by such rumors and instead report accounts spreading such misinformation.

“It has come to my attention that a fake account X has been spreading incorrect information and opinions falsely attributed to me. Please note that this account is not mine,” CS Kuria clarified.

“Report the fake account, stop following it and block it. Thank you for your support and vigilance! Let us end misinformation together,” she added.

The fake post claimed that the CS threatened to resign from his role in government alleging that President William Ruto had abandoned Vice President Rigathi Gachagua.

According to the noted publication, President Ruto had left the PD and had begun working with politicians allied with the opposition parties.

“The reason Ruto is fighting our son Rigathi Gachagua is because the opposition is dining with the government,” the flagged message read.

“I will resign from my position as cabinet secretary and start protecting my elder brother Rigathi Gachagua, who defends the unity of our region.”

The fake post claimed that CS Kuria would go ahead to contest for the Gatundu South Member of Parliament seat in the 2027 general elections.

The allegations come against the backdrop of an escalating battle for political supremacy over Mount Kenya that has reportedly led to politicians taking sides in the matter.

It comes barely a week after the CS was absent from the Mount Kenya leaders’ group meeting called Limuru 3, which was attended by several politicians from the Mount Kenya region.
