Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria  accused Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua of plotting behind the scenes to freeze him out of the planned Limuru III meeting seeking to bring together politicians from the Mt Kenya region.

Taking to his social media account, the CS, without explicitly mentioning Gachagua’s name hit out at the country’s second in command as both men tussle for the Mt. Kenya kingpin status ahead of the 2027 election.

While Kuria did not mention DP Gachagua directly, his description was clear enough to allow observers to draw the conclusion that he was referring to Gachagua.

‘I am aware that a very senior and powerful personality with prior experience in provincial administration is financing Limuru 3 and he has given instructions to Kioni that if I attend he will not finance,” stated Moses Kuria.

The Limuru III conference to be held on Friday aims to bring together political hotshots from the Mt. Kenya region to deliberate on key political matters that affect the region including squabbles amongst leaders.

Besides claiming that Gachagua sponsored the event, CS Kuria further alleged that the event was being organised by Azimio Principal Martha Karua, embattled Jubilee Party Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni and former Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi, all affiliated with the opposition coalition.

In a previous statement, the organisers explained that the event was open to anyone willing to attend.  

“This is an open invitation for anybody who wants to come and anyone who might not feel intimidated. We know there are those who cannot come because they are coming from the government. If you attend a meeting which will bash the government that you are serving you run the risk of being disciplined, but this is a meeting which has no exclusion at all including the Deputy President or even the former president because they come from the region,” the organisers said.

However, in the unfolding debacle, Moses Kuria alleged that Kioni informed him that he was unwelcome.

“Limuru has always been about the community not individuals and not politics. Co-convenor Jeremiah Kioni has publicly and privately informed me that I am not welcome for Limuru 3. He has said that I have invited myself,” stated Kuria.

Additionally, Kuria who has previously claimed that he is the senior most politician in Kiambu requested his constituents to boycott the conference until it is what he would consider as properly convened.

“Limuru is a sacred and revered community event and I would not want any sort of confrontation there. Accordingly I will not be participating in Limuru 3 and I wish to urge all community members to keep off until the meeting is properly convened by competent community structures,” stated Kuria
