CS Moses Kuria

Investments, Trade and Industry CS Moses Kuria on Tuesday morning rode on a motorbike to attend a Cabinet meeting at Kakamega State Lodge.

In a video seen by the Star, the CS is heard engaging a boda boda rider who asks him where his vehicle is.

Kuria then responds that his driver got late and that President William Ruto has been very strict on time.

"Dereva amechelewa na tuanenda mkutano hapo baraza la Mawaziri na Rais amekuwa mkali bwana. Hio mboka itapotea, wacha story nipeleke," The CS says.

This loosely translates to, "My driver is late and we are going to a Cabinet meeting. The president has been very strict (on timekeeping). I will lose my job, stop talking just take me there."

Upon arrival, Kuria tweeted saying that he was not late for the meeting.

This comes a few days after Kuria and his Interior counterpart Kithure Kindiki were locked out of a State House meeting for arriving late.

The two did not sign their performance contracts over lateness.

Also barred from the event presided over by President William Ruto were a few PSs and heads of parastatals who also arrived late for the event.

Ruto will on Tuesday chair a Cabinet meeting at the Kakamega State Lodge. 

This will be the first time he will hold such a meeting in the Western region. It will also be his second Cabinet meeting away from Nairobi.
