"Pastor" Ruto on the spot

Video of William Ruto quoting a nonexistent bible verse goes viral

Deputy President William Ruto has throughout his political career branded himself as a dedicated Christian who plans to become an evangelist after retiring from politics.

Indeed, Ruto’s entry to politics was on the strength of his close association with the church.

He was said to have been a faithful member of the Christian Union while at the University of Nairobi, a position that granted him audience and favor with Former President Daniel arap Moi.

It was therefore a shocker to both friend and foe when Ruto was caught on tape quoting a non-existent bible verse.

The DP quoted Matthew 6 verse 35 but a close observer later noted that the verse does not exist as Mathew Chapter 6 has only 34 verses.

To be fair to the DP, however, the message he was referencing was only two verses away as it is written in Mathew 6 verse 33.

Ruto was making reference to remarks attributed to Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli that the deputy president would not be on the ballot in 2022.

Tumeambiwa na waganga na wachawi ti mtu Fulani atakuwa kwa debe na mtu Fulani hatakuwa kwa debe, ujue mahali Kenya imefika. Na hata wao muwaombee wajue mathayo 6 thelathini na tano kwamba watafute kwanza ufalme wa mungu,” he stated.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his ; and all these things shall be added unto you,” says Mathew 6 verse 33.
