Moses Kuria explains why he moved his office to Two Rivers Mall from NSSF Building
Moses Kuria, the trade cabinet secretary, justified the decision to move his office from the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) facility to the Two Rivers Mall.
Kuria said there was no waste of tax dollars in the move because the mall, worth Sh25 billion, was half owned by the government.
“First, the registered office of my ministry is the NSSF Building, 17th floor. The Two Rivers Mall office which people are talking about is owned largely by the Ministry of Investments and Industry, so it’s like accusing you of being in your own house,” he clarified in an interview with Citizen TV.
The NSSF building office did not pass muster as a top-notch facility that provided investors with the setting necessary to provide them with an ideal view of the nation, the former Gatundu South MP continued.
Kuria, who has grown to be one of President William Ruto’s most influential Cabinet Secretaries, adds that the environment at his office in the Two Rivers Mall is ideal for investors.
“I visit many countries and I know the environment which the investors enjoy in those particular countries. I benchmark with many countries and will give investors an environment that ranks equivalent to what the other countries do.”
