"I Want To Be A Preacher After I Quit Politics" DP Ruto Surprises Kenyans After His Latest Remarks

Deputy President William Ruto on Monday left many Kenyans surprised after he said he will become a pastor after retiring from politics to help people in the journey to heaven. Ruto is touring the rich Mt. Kenya region popularizing his Bottom Up agenda. He said that his Bottom Up economic model is an inspiration from the Bible because Jesus himself used to help the poor.

According to reports, Ruto said immediately he retires from politics he will try to be a preacher to continue spreading the word of God and leading the people of Christ Jesus. He said this on Monday in the Anglican Church of Nyeri where he added that he wants to save the souls of people for the benefit of God.

"Even though I am not a preacher, I have roots of Christ. I have told the Bishops today that after I am finished with leadership, I want to spread the gospel. I want to contribute to the journey of the people going to heaven," the DP said. According to Citizen Digital, Ruto had a meeting with Bishop Joseph Laguna and other a thousand leaders in the Anglican church in Mt Kenya for his campaigns in the region.

"In the book of acts 20:35, Paul tells us not to forget the weak and the poor... because Jesus himself said that giving has more blessings than receiving. That is why our initiative aims at building the nation by getting everyone involved, from the low to the those in the upper areas," Ruto added.
