Moses Kuria Defends Two Rivers Mall as Ideal Location for Investor Meetings


Moses Kuria, Kenya’s Trade Cabinet Secretary, has responded to rumors that he abandoned his government-assigned office to take space in the Two Rivers Mall.

Kuria explained on Monday that his office was at the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) facility in Nairobi.

He further claimed that the Two Rivers Mall, which former President Uhuru Kenyatta inaugurated on February 14, 2017, was part of the Ministry of Trade, Investments and Industry.

“I have a very ambitious agenda to bring foreign direct investments from 500 million to 10 billion dollars. Is it all about shifting offices to a private mall, among other things we should consider? Let’s get down to business! “Everything has a purpose,” he continued.

Kuria supported the Ministry of Trade’s ambitious goals to attract investors in many areas of the economy, despite criticism.

He said that he had met over 100 heads of state and established various links for President William Ruto’s government.

Kuria also denied accusations of contradictory positions at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs under CS Alfred Mutua, claiming that their responsibilities were well-defined.

Kuria underlined the need of hosting crucial meetings at Two Rivers Mall in order to create a suitable atmosphere for investors to trade with the government.

He argued that the site was comparable to the atmosphere enjoyed by investors in nations such as the United States and Europe.

He emphasized the ministry’s commitment to providing investors with an environment comparable to those of other countries.

Kuria’s ambitious plan seeks to boost foreign direct investment from $500 million to $10 billion.

The Trade Secretary is keen to improve Kenya’s business environment and reassure investors of the government’s commitment to investment facilitation.

Notwithstanding the uproar surrounding Kuria’s relocation to Two Rivers Mall, the Trade and Industry Ministry is dedicated to its mission of providing an enabling environment for foreign investors.
