Inside Moses Kuria’s 19 foreign trips in three months



By Wanja Waweru

Moses Kuria, the secretary to the Trade Ministry, is almost always traveling the world when he isn’t stirring up trouble in areas outside of his scope.

With at least 19 trips outside of Kenya in the first 100 days of his tenure, Mr. Kuria has emerged as the minister in President William Ruto’s cabinet who travels the most

Mr. Kuria visited 10 different nations in February alone, visiting 11 presidents in office as well as former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete.

The Trade Cabinet secretary also appears to be one of President Ruto’s preferred ministers, if not his outright favourite, having accompanied him on all his trips abroad.

‘In all these tours, I was not sending myself. I was appointed a special envoy by President William Ruto to talk to our neighbours and try to re-establish our leadership in the region and to push through agreements of strategic value to Kenya,” he says.

He contends that some of these strategic agreements have been stuck for years and can only be released by presidential actions

Together with Ruto, Mr. Kuria has just traveled to Addis Abeba for the African Union Summit after previously visiting South Korea, New York, and the US-Africa Summit.

The CS has traveled abroad more frequently than Alfred Mutua, the minister of foreign affairs, according to a Business Daily count.

Dr. Mutua has traveled to 15 different countries, including the US, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, and Algeria.
