Public Service CS Kuria insists Former President Uhuru Kenyatta is to blame for the current situation facing Kenya.
Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria has insisted that former President Uhuru Kenyatta left behind a dilapidated economy when he handed over the government to his successor in September 2022.
Kuria criticized Uhuru in a statement released on Sunday, saying that it was only after President William Ruto had cleared out the financial disaster he had inherited that Uhuru resurfaced to politics.
CS Kuria made the remarks hours after Uhuru faulted the current administration for blaming the previous regime for the problems the country is currently facing including a struggling economy.
“My response to Uhuru Kenyatta. Every day, the full magnitude of the mess you left behind is dawning on us. We are not complaining. We will continue to clean the mess. We can do so when you are quiet. Better,” he fired off.
“You thought the economy would collapse by December 2023 as you have told your friends repeatedly. Now that it’s clear we have navigated your murky waters, you are all over again.”
While attending a church service in Mwingi on Sunday, Uhuru disclosed that he has been the target of threats and blamed for Kenya’s economic decline, which has caused an increase in the number of people living in poverty.
In addition, the former president denied reports that he had resigned as Chairman and offered to continue to be a part of the opposition’s Azimio la Umoja Coalition.
“I am no longer scared. We have been threatened and told a lot of things. Each time someone fails in their mandate, they blame the previous government. I am used to the blame and life continues,” he told the enthusiastic congregation.
“I am not a conman. I always tell people I am an Azimio member and that is where I belong. My stand has not changed. You should be a politician with a stand who can always be trusted.”
