Ruto’s Faith and State House: Controversies and Clarifications

  • EDITOR’S BRIEF: President Ruto’s religious beliefs have always been an essential part of his identity, and this has translated into his presidency. Despite facing criticism for hosting religious leaders and prayers at State House, the President has maintained that Kenya is a prayerful nation and that State House will continue to be a place of prayer.

President William Ruto is scheduled to attend a church service at the Friends Church (Quakers) in Donholm, Nairobi on Sunday, accompanied by Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja and other leaders.

The President, who has always portrayed himself as a religious person, has faced criticism for hosting religious leaders and prayers at State House. However, Ruto, who has been close to the church since his election, has also hosted Muslim faithfuls for dinner, in addition to Christians for prayers.

Critics have argued that the President’s actions might leave out other faiths, making them feel excluded from the country’s leadership. Nonetheless, Ruto has repeatedly affirmed that State House is a place of prayer, encouraging Kenyans to embrace their prayerful nature.

During a previous event at State House, where prayers were hosted due to the elections, the President dismissed critics, telling them to stop frustrating themselves, as Kenya is a prayerful nation. He also stated that he is aware that some people will accuse him of changing State House to a prayer place, but that he will continue to maintain the venue as a place of prayer because Kenya is a country of faith.
