MP refutes claims of fallout in Jubilee Government

Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has refuted claims of fall out in Jubilee Government after President Uhuru Kenyatta unveiled the first batch of his cabinet in absence of DP William Ruto.

His sentiments comes in the wake of media reports that DP Ruto’s camp was unhappy with the cabinet list leading to his unexplained absence at State House during the naming of the cabinet.

Kuria said there was no crisis in the government and cautioned the media and public against reading too much into the issue.

Let us not create problems where there is none, cautioned Kuria, saying those raising the speculations were still caught-up in the old days of coalition government way of doing things.

Speaking at a church service at King’ong’o PCEA in Nyeri town, Kuria said the government was intact with every decision being made in consultation and consensus between the President and his Deputy.

He at the same time supported the retention of the six Cabinet Secretaries saying it would enable continuity of economic growth of the country.

His sentiments were supported by area Governor, Mutahi Kahiga, who asked Kenyans to give the president time and space to unveil the whole cabinet before raising concerns.

Kahiga said the county was solidly behind the president and his choice of leaders as he called for the area to be also considered in one of the cabinet slots.

He said they overwhelmingly voted for the President and it was fair that they also get a share of the pie in national leadership.
