A few months ago, controversial preacher Bishop David Kariuki Ngare predicted that Deputy President William Ruto will not win the presidential contest set for August.

Bishop Ngare, who is popularly known as Gakuyo, said ODM leader Raila Odinga will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta to become country's fifth head of state.

The founder of infamous Ekeza Sacco, said Ruto will rise to the presidency after being the official leader of opposition for a period of 10 years.

"I want to tell the DP, do not skip one class. It is a must for you to be an Opposition leader before you become the president. You have to be an Opposition leader for 10 years. The seat that Baba (Raila) has been part of, you should now take it," said the preacher.

Now, Gakuyo, who is eyeing Thika Township parliamentary seat, has sent another stern warning to Tangatanga politicians for allegedly demeaning Uhuru.

Speaking at his Calvary Choosen Church in Thika, the Bishop pointed out at Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa and accused him of insulting the President during UDA rally in Nyeri on Saturday.

He claimed the vocal MP told Uhuru "shame on you" for accusing church leaders of taking Ruto's 'dirty money' during the Sagana 3 meeting.

Speaking on Sunday, Gakuyo said all those who abused the President will be punished by the electorate by being not re-elected in the forthcoming polls.

"Ichung'wa has shown blatant disrespect and scorn to the Head of State and the people of Kiambu where he comes from by making such remarks," he said.

"He and other elected leaders of his ilk will face the wrath of voters who will definitely send them home," Gakuyo added as quoted by People Daily.
