Lawyer Miguna Miguna has codenamed Trade and Industry CS Moses Kuria for defending his remarks on fuel.
The CS on Monday morning took to Twitter to explain why the fuel prices will hit a record high in the future.
But in a rejoinder to sentiments made by Kuria, Miguna said his argument does not hold any water.
"The fuel prices in Kenya are too high…higher than in North America where citizens’ wages are much higher and there are social cushions provided by the State!" Miguna fired at the CS.
"You are a CS for Trade: stop repeating these excuses for the government’s failure to address the vagaries of institutional corruption and mismanagement!"
Earlier, Kuria said his work as minister is to advise based on existing realities.
"August fuel stocks will land in October. The cost is well known and it is scientific. September shipments will land in November. Costs are also known. From there we move to Winter in the US and expected stockpiles. And then the bilateral arrangements between Saudis and Russia on the one side and China and India on the other hand plus ongoing oil cuts.
"As Minister responsible for Private Sector mine is to advise business based on science, not truthful voodoo."
In response to the sentiments, Miguna told off Kuria saying his work is to serve the Public and not the private Sector.
"You actually believe that your primary responsibility is to serve private enterprises and not Kenyans who elected President William Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza administration?" Miguna posed.
"Then you are not fit to serve as a clerk in any public office because you don’t understand your role; nor do you respect Kenyans who pay your huge salary!"
CS Kuria has been under fire for making remarks deemed arrogant towards Kenyans regarding the prices of fuel.
His statements saw DP Rigathi Gachagua lash out at him saying state officers must be sensitive in their remarks.
