(Photos) Deputy President re-emerges after missing in action for a week amid fears regarding his health

Ruto attended a church service at the Christ Is The Answer Ministries (CITAM) in Karen where he surprised many when he sat in the middle of the congregation as opposed to the front rows where many VIPs normally seat.

 

Most of the congregation only knew of his presence when he was called out by the lead pastor to greet the people.

At the pulpit, Ruto steered clear of politics and thanked Christians for praying for the country.

“We do not take it for granted that you stand in the gap for our country. Were it not for prayers of many Christians, things may not have been the way they are,” Mr Ruto told the worshippers.

He asked them to pray for the country “especially as we head to the General Election”.

“Pray that in this election, the will of God will be done,” he said.

Health rumours

Rumours had been circulating that the Deputy President was ill hence his absence from the limelight but he appeared in good health throughout the service.

Surprisingly, he had no security detail the entire time.

The DP has been on a whirlwind tour across the country in the past few weeks urging voters to register in large numbers and vote for the Jubilee Party ahead of the August elections.

Ruto was infact driven by his son with no chase car in tow and the two were later seen fuelling his car at a nearby service station at the Galleria Shopping mall.

The Deputy President thereafter sat patiently in traffic on his way to a lunch meal at the popular Jojen Butchery at Dagoretti Corner where he was joined by MPs Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti South), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) Johnson Sakaja (Nominated), Nominated Senator Joy Gwendo and Nairobi Woman Representative aspirant Karen Nyamu.

Thereafter, to Ruto mingled freely with wananchi around the butchery.
