Why Those Who Attended Service With Ruto At Karen Had To Remove Shoes Before Entering Chapel

In the aftermath of Deputy President William Ruto in the company of his family and friends congregating at his Karen residence chapel for a fellowship today on August 14th, one thing that has left Kenyans talking is their decision to remove shoes while in the building.

Upon the DP sharing photos of how the fellowship unfolded, it was noticed that everyone had removed shoes during the service except one person, that's the DP's mother.

Kenyans who had noticed the same in one photo that was shared on Facebook kept wondering why the congregants had ditched the shoes as seen in the comments below.

Our look at the chapel and how it's interior design stands out made us conclude that they had to remove the shoes for hygiene reasons in addition to giving it the respect it deserves as a house of worship.

Unlike in most public chapels out here, this little chapel had been decorated in style with fluffy carpets having been laid from one corner to the other.

Blue-coloured carpets were the dominated the building's floor especially in the nave but red carpets covered the aisle and altar.

As seen below, it was only Mama Sarah Cherono Cheruiyot, the DP's mother who was spotted wearing sandals in the chapel but anyone else had removed their shoes.

In any case, people with such carpets in their houses normally remove their shoes before stepping on them and it would be understood if the same was practiced here.
