at his rural home and started school at Githuya Primary School in Gatundu
completing his primary education in 1983.
2. He proceeded to
pursue his secondary education at Ituru Secondary School sitting for his exams
in 1987.
3. Mr Kuria was later
admitted at University of Nairobi where he pursued a Bachelor of Commerce
graduating in 1993.
4. While at the
University he was the treasurer of the Students Organisation of Nairobi
University (SONU) which served a prelude to his entry into politics.
5. He has worked as an
auditor, accountant and banker from 1994 when he started as an auditor at a
firm and ended up at Standard Chartered Bank in 1995 as the head of business
process re-engineering, Africa.
6. While at Standard
Chartered Bank he experienced both his highest and lowest moments in his
career, the highlight being in 1997 when he pioneered the bank’s hubbing
process. However, in 1999 he lost an opportunity to become the bank’s head of
operation which was taken by Jeremy Awori, now Barclays Bank CEO.

by his former boss Chris Wingfield.

The National Alliance (TNA) officer in charge of strategy, a position he held
until he was elected Gatundu South MP during a by-election in 2014
