Deputy President William Ruto appeared in a unique attire issued to him by the African Church of the Holy Spirit at his Sugoi home on Saturday, September 12 during special prayers.
The DP was prayed for by High Priest Shem Shamala as he drummed up support for 2022 elections.
The attire included a white robe with a red cross embedded on it. He also wore a white cap and carried a red cross with him.
While he was being prayed for, the DP, a staunch Christian quoted 1 Corinthians 1:18 which states that ‘For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God’.
Ruto also sang, celebrated and danced with the crowd who were not keen to keep a social distance or wear face masks.
“Leaders were neither born noble nor influential. By human standards, they should be humble, wise and let their work speak for them,” Ruto stated.
He also seemingly hit back at ODM leader Raila Odinga and his detractors by quoting another verse which stated that the weak are used by God to humble the powerful and arrogant.
Ruto assured the congregants that he would continue supporting the churches after Odinga questioned his source of wealth.
The DP has heightened his network and connection with the youth through empowerment programs at his Karen and Sugoi residences, donating business equipment such as motorbikes, water tanks and washing machines.
In attendance at the DP’s event in Sugoi were MPs Ben Washiali (Mumias East), Enoch Kibunguchy (Likuyani), Malulu Injendi (Malava) and former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale.
