Deputy President William Ruto yesterday lashed out at critics claiming they spend their money on witchcraft.
“Some people have been criticizing my frequent church attendance. But if you investigate these people very well, they use their money at night. They take their money to witchdoctors at night, but we take our money to church during the day for the work of God,” Ruto said.
Ruto said the same yesterday at AIPCA Patanisho in Kayole.
Some leaders, including former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, have questioned the source of his enormous donations, which he makes nearly every weekend.
ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna is also among those who have raised similar queries.
“How can somebody who is responsible for a country that is failing be doing so well in his private business? How comes that this business acumen cannot be translated into the country so that we all prosper? And when you ask, you are told he is a businessman,” he said.
Ruto, who gave the newly opened church Sh1.5 million, said, “They say I have been purchasing seats for churches. And because we do not ask them why they take their money to witchdoctors at night, they should leave us alone to give our money to church for the work of God.”
