CS Kuria sends cryptic message over powerful forces sabotaging his work

Public Service CS Moses Kuria claims some internal forces determined to sabotage his ministry work

Public Service CS Moses Kuria claims some internal forces determined to sabotage his ministry work.

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria on Thursday, February 29, sent a cryptic post which prompted debate online.

The CS said that certain internal forces were committed to undermining and sabotaging his Public Service Cabinet Secretary mission.

“No amount of internal sabotage will deter me,” Moses Kuria wrote attracting over 100 comments in less than 20 minutes after publishing.

Kenyans were left wondering what the former parliamentarian from Gatundu was alluding to in his remarks.

A number of social media users claimed that Kuria had received threats in response to his most recent decision to eliminate phantom workers in the public sector. 

They contended that the majority of ghost workers have connections to other influential people who oppose CS’s intention to implement a national biometric registration program.

This comes after CS Kuria announced his ministry will embark on a biometric registration exercise of all public servants in Kenya.

He noted that the government is spending a lot of money to pay salaries to ghost workers, sending capitation to students and the elderly.

“As a country that is very religious, we are not doing very well in chasing away ghosts. This country is full of ghosts. We are paying ghost civil servants, ghost teachers,” said Kuria.

He added, “We are spending capitation on ghost students. We are sending cash transfers to ghost elderly citizens. As we accelerate our prayers to exorcise ghosts, the Ministry of Public Service will embark on biometric registration of all the 900,000 of us who are paid by the taxpayers including counties.”

The Public Service Commission (PSC) in January unmasked close to 20,000 ghost workers on the government payroll.

In an annual report covering the 2022/2023 financial year, the commission established that there were 19,467 additional employees in different government agencies and departments against the approved staffing levels.
