A number of religious leaders led by Kitale Dioceses Bishop Maurice Crowley on Friday held prayers for Deputy President William Ruto at his Uasin Gishu, Sugoi home.

The leaders had made a special visit to the DP where they gathered around with and with outstretched arms said prayers for him.

"The Church is the glue that holds our nation together through prayer, intercession and ingraining bonds of unity, peace and love.

"It is an institution of harmony, deep faith and servant leadership that breeds oneness and a sense of belonging," he said in return.

DP Ruto's Warning to Politicians

The DP also took the opportunity to address politicians who have been hinting at a possible repeat of the 2017/2018 political violence that was witnessed in Kenya.

"We do not have a place for this kind retrogressive politics. Leaders must seek to further harmony, togetherness and development in Kenya.

"I invite the political class to refine their messages for the well-being of our country, we all want to forge one country.

"We have a past, which we have many lessons to draw from. We all have the duty of building bridges that would unite Kenya. We will never allow the political class to take back Kenya to instability," the DP warned.
