DP Ruto Reveals Why He's Rich As He Surprises A Nyeri Bishop With Ksh 3 Million Pledge For A House

On his final day of his three-day tour to Nyeri county today on December 6th, Deputy President William Ruto commenced his day with a visit to the Anglican Church of Kenya, Nyeri Town Cathedral for a meeting that brought together more than one thousand five hundred church leaders from across Mt. Kenya.

The DP who had been scheduled to hold a of series rallies in Kanini Kega's Kieni Constituency later in the day had a few issues to touch on while at the church among them being a proposed retirement home for the Bishop who will be retiring soon.

The DP noted that "I've heard that the Bishop is retiring soon and you are planning to construction for him a retirement home. Because I'm a Christian and a big believer in the power of giving, I would like to be part of that plan.

Therefore you'll facilitate and make the necessary arrangements then give me your account number so that I may send you three million shillings for you to build that home.

Should you meet some challenges along the way and fail to complete the house, then you'll reach out to me again so that we may complete the same."

On why he was giving out such a huge amount of money as a donation just like how he's been doing all over the country, the DP narrated a story from 2009 that he says changed him and has been driving him up to date.

That "I remember there was a time in 2009 when we had gone to Migori for a fundraiser towards construction of a church.

In that ceremony, the presiding pastor said that "be free to give and contribute towards God's work and you will never be broke. Should you go poor because you gave to the Lord, then come and see me."

The DP's point was that "no one will ever turn poor because he has given to the Lord. We give not because we have but we have because we give. You will never become poor because you give."

Below are some photos that were taken during that church visit.
