On Wednesday, Depuy President William Ruto’s wife became the latest casualty of the wrath of Kenyans on social media after one of her Twitter posts terribly backfired and users tore her apart in the comments section.
As the country faces turbulent times; with cases of corruption hitting an all-time high and Kenyans in the North starving to death, Rachel Ruto in her best wisdom, saw that the most effective solution would be launching a “National Prayer and Fasting” day in a bid to invite the good Lord’s intercession before matters became any worse.
Mama your husband carried Ksh.10 million cash to Kajiado goat auction, maombi tuweke kando. Just go and break the Sugoi safe. Tutaombea pesa zifikie wenye njaa. pic.twitter.com/vqGEwM3yZu— Cyprian Nyakundi Escobar (@CisNyakundi) March 21, 2019
In her tweet, Rachel said that it had reached a time when “true worshippers” like herself came together and worshipped the Father in “spirit and truth”. Her request to Kenyans to pray and fast came accompanied by a full schedule with all sectors that have been troubling this great nation – from the media to the church and even the government – awarded a special portion on the timetable.
It’s good to note that this isn’t the first time Rachel has requested and led Kenyans in blindly throwing prayers at the nation’s problems. Just a few months ago, accompanied by her brigade, Ms. Ruto held prayers at Salgaa following the deaths of tens of Kenyans through road accidents at the blackspot. In the end, physics gave her the middle finger and Kenyans continued to perish due to the poorly constructed section of the road and irresponsible driving.
Before coming out to the public kindly cleanse your house first bcoz of your husbands sins and all shall be well in truth and spirit— Iroto Edwin (@edwin_iroto) March 20, 2019
This time around, however, Kenyans refused to board her train and some, unable to hold back their anger, asked her to start by praying for Kenya’s biggest problem instead; her husband.
Going by the comments, one can clearly tell that Kenyans have become tired of being constantly taken for fools by politicians, their spouses, and clergymen who have for long been selling them prayer as a solution to Kenya’s problems.
You want to pray for a week and Kenyans are dying of Hunger and Thirst while your people are carting money away in bags, changing to dollars to fit and buying hi end German helicopters. Oh God take me away 😭🤧— Benji Ndolo (@BenjiNdolo) March 21, 2019
Prayers are good, mama. But this country needs the TRUTH more than it needs prayers.— Koech Moses (@koechm) March 21, 2019
I don’t know how to put this politely ma’am. Prayer SHALL NOT solve the problems that have been created by our politicians. You can take that to the bank. If you don’t believe me, ask Wabukala how successful his ‘religious approach’ to handling corruption has been. Thank you.— John Ogola (@jjogola) March 21, 2019
Do you share God’s word with your husband!? Preach at home first.— Desmond Musuya (@desmondmusuya) March 21, 2019
