Reuben Kigame, a former presidential contender and gospel performer, criticized President William Ruto for overdoing religion.
“I am a committed Christian who believes in prayer and believes God has helped us this far and Will continue to trust Him for the future of Kenya, but I hope that issues such as lowering food prices will not be met with the State house saying, “let’s pray about it,“ he Stated.
The President and First Lady, Dr. William and Mrs. Rachel Ruto, welcomed a group of African prophets and the wildly famous Tanzania Zablon choir on Wednesday, September 14.
Kigame also questioned the presence of evangelical church members at the presidential inauguration in Kasarani say they were over represented.
“During the inauguration, the evangelical wing of the church was overrepresented. This was unnecessary. I do not know what the transition committee intended to prove to Kenya and the watching world,”
He urged the President to stop overdone religion and focus on Article 27 of the constitution.
Freedom of speech and equality before the law are guaranteed by Article 27 of the Constitution.
“I know I will be bashed but I need to be truthful and accountable to the nation. I think the Ruto administration is overdoing religion. While we acknowledge the hand of God in bringing us this far, the presidency must observe Article 27 of the constitution,” Kigame stated
