Ruto prayer rallies to continue, say Duale and three colleagues

By: SONU TANU

Four politicians on Saturday promised to continue with countrywide prayers for Deputy President William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang until the ICC cases collapse.

Critics have said the prayer meetings are political rallies meant to polarise the country.

The four spoke at the Litein High School Sports Ground, Bureti subcounty, Kericho when 200 boda boda operators graduated in a driving course.

National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale said politicians criticising the meetings are “obstacles”.

He slammed Kalenjin politicians who have joined hands with the opposition to ensure Ruto and Sang are jailed.

Duale was with Kericho Senator Charles Keter, Bureti MP Leonard Sang, Igembe North MP Joseph M’Eruaki and Eric Keter of Belgut.

They said they will not stop the prayer rallies until the two are off the ICC hook.

“It’s through the prayers that we have seen people coming out with the truth that Ruto never plotted to unleash violence in 2007,” Duale said.

The Garissa Town MP termed as hypocrisy Raila Odinga’s brother Oburu Odinga’s claim that Ruto did not plot the post-election violence.

Duale asked why Oburu is sharing the information so late in the day.
