Public Service CS Moses Kuria has broken silence hours Hours after the Public Service Commission denounced the appointment of Jacque Maribe as the Head of Communication in his ministry.

In a statement, PSC denied allegations that were purportedly from Kuria, that it appointed the former journalist in the capacity.

PSC also said that once a vacancy for the Head of Communication in Kuria’s ministry arises, it will be filled through a competitive process.

In response to the statement, the CS pointed a blaming finger on the Nation Media Group, for writing a false story about him. According to him, he was never interviewed by the writer of the media house who wrote the story about him claiming that PSC was in charge of Maribe’s appointment.

Kuria further threatened to sue Nation Media over forgery and fraud, disowning the screenshot of the message that was purportedly from him

“Contrary to reports by the Nation, I have never been interviewed by the media house nor made any comment nor announcement about Jacque Maribe. I have challenged CEO Stephen Gitagama to provide evidence from one Mwangi Muiruri who wrote the article. I have since alerted Mr Gitagama that the said screenshot is a forgery and I will be at DCI Headquarters at 9.30 a.m. on Friday to report the Nation Media Group and the reporter of fraud and forgery,” he said.

He went to state that he has been friends with Maribe for the past 16 years and will stand by her .

“Meanwhile, I stand with Jacque Maribe, my friend for the last 16 years and I will stand with her just like I stood with Gov Kawira Mwangaza in the wake of unjustified bullying,” Kuria said.

Despite the announcement that Maribe was not an employee under PSC, she accompanied Kuria on official duty in Nakuru on Thursday.
