Trade cabinet secretary Moses Kuria has remained unapologetic over his high cost of fuel remarks.
The trade CS says that his work is to advise Kenyans based on science and not truthful voodoo.
“As Minister responsible for the Private Sector, my role is to advise businesses based on science, not truthful voodoo,” Kuria stated.
CS Kuria was responding to deputy President Rigathi Gachagua after criticizing senior government officials for making reckless remarks over the Recent fuel price by The energy regulatory authority.
Gachagua clarified that the statements made by some leaders did not represent the official position of President William Ruto’s government.
“I would like to remind them that although the people of Kenya did not employ them directly, they decisively elected H.E President William Ruto, who in turn appointed them Cabinet Secretaries and Advisors. And hence by virtue of this -they are employed by Kenyans. 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, ” Gachagua shared via X.
He then reiterated his earlier position that Kenya will not see a reduction in fuel prices in the foreseeable future.
EPRA on Thursday, reviewed fuel prices upwards, with Super Petrol now retailing at Sh211.64, diesel at Sh201, and Kerosene at Sh202 per litre in Nairobi.
