Deputy President William Ruto’s twitter blogger, Funeral Representative and Western Kenya point man Boni Khalwale is overworking to cement his position.
Today, he organized over 4,000 pastors from the African Divine church who turned Ruto’s Karen home into a quagmire of drums, dancing trances and demons casting rituals.
After the energy sapping dance, the clergy were treated to sumptuous buffet and sources intimate that the men of God were publicly rumbling and shoving each other on the line hoping to get the top layers.
In attendance were MPs Mwambu Mabonga (Bumula), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Mary Wamaua (Maragua), Malulu Injendi (Malava), Bernard Shinali (Ikholomani), Nixon Korir (Langata), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East), John Waluke (Sirisia), Oscar Sudi (Kapseret) and former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale.
The meeting was ostensibly religious and financial. Apart from the fervent prayers, Ruto asked churches to consider joining Savings and Credit Co- Operatives (SACCOs) in a bid to improve their economic status.
“We know as members of the clergy you do not get enough money like other Kenyans. To help you, you should come up with a program of raising funds and later take loans when in need,” said Ruto.
“SACCOs in Kenya have raised Ksh.500 billion and we want you as the Divine church to join in the mobilization of local resources through SACCOs so that we can fund our development.”
The Deputy President said there was need to mobilize local resources to fund the country’s development in additional to foreign loans and taxes.
At the same time, The African Divine Church of Kenya has asked Ruto and other political leaders not to shy away from participating in the development of churches.
