Here is how I describe the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Dr Nicholas Muraguri: Arrogant, boastful, with a preposterously inflated ego.
The man displays a blend of cockiness that should not be allowed anywhere near a government office.
The tragedy of it all is that the conversation between the principal secretary and Business Daily reporter, Stellar Murumba, was not some private off-duty conversation over a few drinks at a restaurant. Dr Muraguri was speaking in his official capacity as principal secretary.
The conversation between the PS and the reporter exposed the shallowness of support for Press freedom in the upper echelons of the Jubilee administration.
