Ruto's prayer rally cancelled again

DP suffers set back again

Deputy President William Ruto

Deputy President William Ruto's prayer rally in Murang'a was cancelled for a second time after receiving a warning from the Meteorological Department.

The meeting scheduled for Saturday, was put off after the weather man stated that the meeting would be affected by ice rain.

Claims had suggested that the event was abandoned due to political reasons.

Ndindi Nyoro, Kiharu MP, however disregarded the speculations and noted that politics had nothing to do with the decision made as reported by Nation.

“We have been cautioned by the Meteorological Department that we shall receive ice rain and it will not be advisable to hold the prayer rally.

"There is no politics behind the indefinite cancellation of the event and we shall keep the public posted on when to hold the rally," remarked Nyoro.

Ruto's event cancelled to mourn Moi's dead son

Last month, the gathering had been called off in what was reported to be a move to give the country time to mourn the passing away of Retired President Daniel Moi's son, Jonathan Moi.

A section of members of the clergy had pointed out that the meeting failed to materialize due to a division among the religious leaders.

Some MP's from the region had highlighted that the meeting was being disguised for a political rally.

Charles Mwangi, Central Region County Assemblies Forum representative, alleged that it was a plan to make Ruto the kingpin in the Mt Kenya region.

“There was nothing like a prayer rally. To me, that was a plan to install the deputy president as the region’s kingpin while we know that the President (Uhuru Kenyatta) is our spokesman,” stated Mwangi.
