Over the last few days, Trade CS Moses Kuria has been on the spot over his utterances in an apparent attack against the media and specifically, Nation Media Group (NMG).
In a statement released on Monday, Kenya Union of Journalists Secretary General Erick Oduor said the CS has become a symbol of national shame.
The Union also demanded an apology from both the CS and the government over the statements arguing that the media had an obligation to keep the state in check.
Moreover, the Azimio coalition is now calling for the resignation of Kuria after documents linked him to the edible oils scam as they accused him of using insults to cover up his mistakes.
Azimio also wants President William Ruto to come out and explain his extent of knowledge of the saga and what action he intends to take against those implicated.
Do you think CS Kuria should resign after his outbursts against NMG and his alleged involvement in the importation of 125 000 metric tonnes of edible oils scandal?
