"No Apologies For Having Prayers In State House" DP Gachagua Fires Back At His Opponents

Those who have been criticizing the William Ruto government for having prayer services in State House have been called out by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

Gachagua stated on Citizen TV on Sunday night that the first family and the second family are both made up of devoted Christians, acknowledging the part religion played in Ruto's triumph for president.

"We don't apologize for holding prayers in the State House. William and I, are ardent Christians. We are both quite devout; my wife is a pastor and William Ruto's wife is an intercessor. Kenyans prayed for us to win, and we greatly respect the church of Christ," he stated.

The Kenya Kwanza government seeks to improve the relationship between the church and the community, the deputy president continued.

"The church signed off on a number of things with us."

Gachagua's remarks come after a discussion about how William Ruto's administration overdoes religion.

The families of Ruto and Gachagua gathered at the State House for a Sunday Prayer session on September 25.

Then, First Lady Rachel Ruto declared that the State House prayer services would continue each month.

"I want to let the church know that this is not the final service we will hold; you will continue to come here each month to praise the Lord for his blessings on us," she stated.

Before the prayer ceremony, Rachel had conversations at the State House with a prophet, a preacher, and singers, among other religious figures.
