Public Service CS Mosese Kuria refutes claims of disagreement between him and Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi over the locations of their respective offices.
The government had previously allocated Musalia Mudavadi the Railways buildings as his new office.
Mudavadi has reportedly been conducting business from Treasury buildings while the building is still undergoing renovations.
But after President William Ruto added him additional responsibilities as the Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary, speculation was also rife that the Prime CS would move to the Old Treasury Buildings along Harambee Avenue.
Following cabinet changes, it was expected that CS Moses Kuria would also be moved to the Railways buildings.
As such, a local media station reported that the lack of clarity in the assigned offices had led to friction between Mudavadi and Kuria, claims which the latter has now dismissed.
“The Prime Cabinet Secretary will continue operating from Railways Headquarters and myself from Harambee House,” Kuria stated noting that he had a cordial working relationship with Musalia.
CS Kuria denied that his ministry had been relocated to the Railways offices.
Kuria also said that Veronicah Nduva, the principal secretary for performance and delivery management, will be based in Harambee House.
The goal of this, according to the former Trade CS, is to make sure that the PS can able to oversee government delivery services and performance contracts.
The Office of the Prime Cabinet Secretary also denied reports that Mudavadi would be moving to Harambee Avenue.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Office of the Prime Cabinet Secretary and Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Foreign and Diaspora Affairs remains at the Railways Headquarters,” the statement read in part.
Before moving to the Old Treasury Building, Moses Kuria had been located at Two Rivers Mall in Ruaka where he was executing his mandate as Trade CS.
After the October 4, cabinet reshuffle, the Trade Ministry was reassigned back to The National Social Security Fund building where it had been previously domiciled.
