The deputy president William Ruto has today joined congregants in Kiambu for a church service. The DP was given a chance to speak to the congregation after the summon by the bishop where he commented on the politics of the day as well as reaffirming his commitment towards supporting the church in every way.
William Ruto in particular directed jabs towards ODM party leader Raila Odinga accusing him of undermining the church in the country. In this regard, Ruto noted that Odinga is against politicians funding the church because he does not want religion to grow in the country. He further exclaimed that he will continue giving his money to the church as offering despite controversies and rebellion from the opposition leader.
Ruto even told the congregation that he was seeing a day where he is going to give Billions to the church as offering. This day is seemingly the day Ruto will be sworn in as president.
"Some people have a problem about how often we go to church. They have accused us of carrying sacks full of money to church. We are looking for the day when we will not be taking thousands, when we will not be taking millions, but we will be taking Billions to church... We have to build the next government that respects the church," he said triggering thunderous applause from the congregation.
Ruto has been accused by his rival Odinga for being hypocritical and using the church and youth for political gain in the name of philanthropy, kindness and generosity.
