Deputy President William Ruto Donates Sh. 1Million To A Church In Kisii County

Deputy President William Ruto was addressing congregants during a church service at the Deliverance Church International in Kisii town. Willium Ruto reiterated that his bottom-up economic ideology, which has been widely opposed by his rival politicians, was just a way of lifting the jobless people without leaving anyone behind.

While Ruto was addressing the church, he quoted a bible verse from Psalms 113:7-8;“He (God) raises the poor out of the dust and makes them sit with the kings and princes,”. William Ruto afterwards donated Sh1 million and pledged another million from the proceeds of his chicken sale. Despite the DP continuing his politicking on the church’s pulpit, he was careful not to cross the line. The vice president made sure his message was home to those he was addressing, spoke in parables, referred to the Bible in some instances and at one point even asked the Bishop if he had crossed the line.

Ruto also added that many politicians go to church because he has evangelized to them. He urged the church to welcome them even though they come with a lot of noise sometimes. Some preach the word of God out of strife, envy and presence, what matters is that the word of God is being preached.

Ruto started his three-day tour of Kisii County on Saturday, October 3 evening, until Monday. He is expected to hold several meetings with the local leaders and attend two church services at Deliverance Church in Kisii Town before proceeding to Kenyenya Catholic Church.
