William Ruto, is a butt of all jokes on social media after quoting a non existent Bible verse on Sunday.
Speaking at the Citadel Salvation Army Church in Kakamega on Sunday, Ruto said that “in this country, there are those who believe in God and those who believe in witchcraft”, before going ahead to quote a verse that is not in existence.
“Tunaomba muwaombee, wajue ya kwamba Mathayo 6:35, watafute kwanza ufalme wa Mungu wawachane na hii mambo ingine ambayo inachafua taifa letu.”
Who’s surprised? How many times has he quoted projects that do not exist?— Daniel Mwaniki (@DanDanielMwanik) April 15, 2019
The correct verse the DP wanted to quote is Mathew 6:33, which says “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
He was responding to Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli’s remarks that he (Ruto) will not be on the presidential ballot in 2022.
Hata kama ni wewe.Someone saying hautakuwa kwa ballot paper and you badly want it tooth and nail inaezafanya uchanganyikiwe hadi usahau verse— vivian mukeni (@VMukeni) April 15, 2019
Atwoli’s remarks have caused an uproar in the country’s political scene with the DP’s allies led by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi saying that Atwoli will be answerable if anything happens to the country’s second in command.
It is not everyday one gets to see Deputy President William Ruto show sloppiness, much less in public but for this time he was on the spot. William Ruto said the 2022 race is between those who believe in God and those who believe in witchcraft.
Forget quoting a nonexistent bible verse, my greatest concern is how the church allows the pulpit to be used in trading political insults. Isn’t there a line that must not be crossed. Insulting inside a church? Jameni— Kenya West© (@KinyanBoy) April 15, 2019
Ruto’s message was strong and solid without a doubt; but there was one oddity in his Bible verse since it does not exist in the holy writ. In the DP’s defence, he meant to quote Mathew Chapter 6 Verse 33 which states: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”.
