I will become a pastor after retirement – DP Ruto announces
“There is no need for leaders to overstay in power”
Ruto made the revelation while paying tribute to PEFA's Bishop Thiong'o as he celebrated 50 years of God's ministry, Kitale, Trans-Nzoia County.
The DP said politicians should avoid the temptation to overstay in power because there was life after politics.
Ruto in Christian Union
Ruto was accompanied by local leaders and allies including Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.
The deputy president has a long association with the evangelical community, having been an active member of the Christian Union at the University of Nairobi.
It was in the CU leadership that he gained the attention of political leaders, often being involved in delegations to pay homage to former President Daniel arap Moi before joining the dreaded the YK92 that campaigned for the then President in the 1992 election.
