Hours after Deputy President William Ruto met President Uhuru Kenyatta at the 18th National Prayer Breakfast and advised him on what to do following a recent court ruling that declared BBI process illegal, the second in command opted to use a Bible verse to drive his point home.
Taking to social media, Ruto shared a verse that seemed to add more weight to his earlier calls for dialogue.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.— Isaiah 1:18.
“Joined President Uhuru Kenyatta and other leaders for the national prayer breakfast meeting, Parliament Buildings, Nairobi County.” Wrote DP Ruto.
At the event, the DP noted that while the Covid-19 pandemic is a major setback for the country, it has provided an opportunity for us to evaluate where we are as a country.
He noted that God may be using Covid-19 as a way of uniting the country and asking leaders to come together and speak in one voice.
According to the DP, now is the best time for Kenyans to come together since BBI and Tanga tanga rallies have been halted due to the pandemic.
“So much has happened. But as things stand today, Tangatanga tours are not there and the reggae has also stopped. We thus need to do something together… Maybe God is saying we come reason together,” he said.
“Even in the midst of this pandemic, we have had positive things; the President launched the Lamu Port, we got our first lady CJ and also our speaker got himself an appointment with the elders. I think it serves him right, after being a speaker for so long maybe it is time to be a spokesperson.” Added DP Ruto
