This occurred after Winnie Odinga sarcastically criticized Rachel, Ruto's wife, for considering praying for the cleansing of polluted Nairobi river water. Winnie stated, "Yawa afadhali aende Nairobi River acheze kama yeye" while citing Rachel's video where she purportedly pleaded for contaminated borehole water to be cleansed in Karen.
Winnie's statements, however, sparked strong reactions online, with many netizens reprimanding her and telling her to respect God if she cannot respect Ruto's wife.
Others overreacted by telling Winnie to respect the church and the power of Christ's miracles, but some simply interpreted Winnie's statements as usual humor.
Some readers warned Winnie to avoid discussing religion if she does not believe in it, recalling her family's comments on church contributions and the construction of churches.
"I wish you had remained silent; your father has spoken out against church giving, your mother wants local churches to close, and now Winnie does not believe in prayers. What sort of household is this?" Another Twitter user said.
