I won’t stop supporting the church – Ruto

Despite the various criticisms he has received from some leaders, Deputy President William Ruto has stated that he will continue to support the church.

Ruto stated that the church and other religious communities have played an important role in the government’s operations, adding that the country would not have achieved anything without their help.

During a church service at ACK St. James Cathedral in Murang’a town, Ruto praised the clergy for their unwavering support for the government, saying the two had had a fantastic partnership.

“As Vice President, I can attest that without God, all that the administration has accomplished under the leadership of the President would have been unthinkable.” He stated, “We are the greatest benefactors of your prayers.”

While avoiding succession politics, Ruto stated that he will continue to assist the church, assuring the faithful that the country will remain a God-fearing country.

“Those who are making a fuss over us are merely politicians searching for votes, and they will not be able to stop us.” He remarked, “We appreciate the relationship you provide us.”

Furthermore, he continued, the bible details the culture of giving, citing Acts 20:35, which states that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

Ruto stated that he attends church because he is a Christian and that his role as a leader comes second.

“In the church, we will continue to work with you. Those who have been making a fuss over us have no idea how donations function,” he explained.

He claimed that the majority of Christians who support churches do so because they are wealthy, and that everyone has a responsibility to do so according to the Bible.

Ruto also attempted to sell the bottom-up economic concept, which he claimed is based on the Bible.

“He rises the poor from the dust and the needy from the ash heap, according to Psalms 113. He arranges for them to be seated with princes… “That’s how bottom-up works,” he explained.

The deputy president also promised to assist the church’s clergy in forming a Sacco, which would allow them to save and improve their living conditions.

He stated that the country must embrace the saving culture, which he claims has led to the country’s indebtedness.

He mentioned China as an example, claiming that the Chinese save around 55% of their GDP, but Kenyans save only 7%.

“That is why we are borrowing money from China,” he told the congregation, “because they have adopted the saving ethic.”

“I’ll speak with one of the clergy,” he added, “so that we can plan how the Sacco will be founded and run.”

Musalia Mudavadi, the leader of the African National Congress (ANC), informed the church that the Kenya Kwanza alliance is made up of leaders who appreciate the church’s integrity and ensure that it is not mocked.

“We can make jokes out there,” he continued, “but it would be blasphemy to make a reference to God.”

He claimed that without the church’s help, the country would perish.

Mudavadi urged the clergy to continue praying for free and fair elections in the country, stating that the votes must reflect the people’s wishes.

“However, if we make a mistake, please correct us. Reach out to us and give us advice so that we can do and say the correct thing “he stated

MPs Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), and Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Mary Waithera (Maragua), Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata, and Kiambu governor contender William Kabogo were among those who joined them.

The crew will tour the Kiharu constituency’s Karuri, Kahatia, and Kahuro districts before heading to Kangema and Kanyenya-ini in the Kangema constituency.
