DP Ruto: I Want To Be An Evangelist After Politics

Once he departs from active politics, Deputy President William Ruto says he plans to become an evangelist. During a speech at the ACK cathedral in Nyeri town on Monday, Ruto said he wants to convert more people to the heavenly kingdom. 

"I come from a Christian family, despite not being a preacher. I told the bishops today that when I'm done with politics, I want to be an evangelist so that I can help people get to paradise," Ruto stated.


On Monday, Ruto began the third day of his visit to Mount Kenya to promote his 2022 presidential campaign based on the bottom-up economic model. He praised the approach, claiming it was derived from the Bible, as a method to make Kenya more inclusive. 

"You may be wondering what all the commotion is about with this bottom-up approach as a Christian. Take note, however, that the bottom-up account derives from Psalms 113:7-8, where the Lord speaks of lifting the poor from the dust," Ruto elaborated.


The convention was attended by Bishop Joseph Kagunda and 1,000 other ACK officials. "In Acts 20:35, Paul warns us not to overlook the vulnerable... because the Lord Jesus Christ said that it is more blessed to give than to receive. That's why we say in our program that we need to build a country that includes everyone, from the top to the bottom," he went on to explain more. Later that day, he would take part in various public rallies in Charity, Kiawara, Nairutia, and Wiyumiririe, all of which were commercial centers.
