Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria apparently trolled Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua over his career progression, terming it an epic fail.

In a statement posted on his social media account, Kuria questioned why the Deputy President never received a single promotion during his 20 years working as a District Officer (DO).

He pointed out that their peers who graduated alongside the Deputy President had made significant strides in their careers, while Gachagua remained in the DO position.

Furthermore, Kuria questioned Gachagua's decision to leave public service and work as a personal assistant for former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"He graduated from the University of Nairobi in 1988. He became a District Officer for two decades without a single promotion. His classmates and juniors have grown from strength to strength in position, stature and exposure.

"From being a DO he graduated into a PA. Epic failure," Kuria trolled.

CS Kuria's latest jab at Gachagua coincides with allegations of Gachagua sabotaging government agendas.

Addressing a gathering in Baringo County, National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung'wah suggested that the rift between Gachagua and his superior, William Ruto, stemmed from financial allocations.

He claimed that Ruto faced blackmail after refusing budget proposals for office renovations.

"They also wanted to blackmail Ruto to give them personal money for the refurbishment of their offices and Ksh40 million carpets. Because Ruto has refused your request, you go and collect four MPs to fight Ruto," he stated.

On the other hand, Gachagua lamented that his allies were being intimidated.

He noted that some leaders intending to work with him were being subdued by individuals that he did not mention.

"Leaders who are with me in this journey are being intimidated and threatened that if you call for unity shall not get development or if you are seen with the DP things can be very bad but those are normal things in politics," the DP stated during a church service in Ruiru.

However, previously, Gachagua has hinted that close friends of the President have been behind the recent tensions in government as they have been treating him like their junior.
