2022 politics has gathered momentum in the country. Aspirants and other political figures have begun early campaigns to popularize themselves to Kenyan voters ahead of the polls. Next year, in August Kenyans, will head to the polls to elect their new leaders in a much anticipated general election.
On Sunday the Deputy President Dr. William Samoei Ruto was in the Mt Kenya region in Meru County where he was accompanied by his close allies including Meru Senator Mithika Linturi. The second in power attended a church service at AIPCA Church where he worshipped together with other congregants.
While addressing the congregation Ruto Ally Hon Mithika Linturi urged religious leaders to allow political figures to speak during church service because church and politics are intertwined since the old days.
He said the church has been condemning bad practices in the government for a long time and went ahead to name and congratulate key religious leaders from Meru who have contributed to promoting the condemnation of bad governance in recent years.
He said politicians are wise to choose what to speak on the pulpit and what should not be spoken about. He later went ahead and criticized the government for constantly attacking DP Ruto.
He said he initially stood with DP Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta during their difficult time at the International Criminal Court and he is ready to go to ICC in defense of the Deputy President.
He vowed to stand by DO Ruto till 2022 and urged Meru residents to join the UDA party and back DP Ruto's presidential bid.
