VIDEO: Perhaps eager to talk to God alone, Uhuru stuns churchgoers after attending mass without security

Published

It seems like President Uhuru Kenyatta has a knack for keeping a low profile when not on official official state duties.

On Sunday, the president stunned church-goers at the Holy Family Basilica after turning up for mass alone.

Dressed casually in a blue, stripped polo shirt and khakis, the president entered the compound under cover, much to the surprise of churchgoers.

According to reports, it was only after the president alighted from his black Mercedes G-Wagon that that the congregants established his identity, with some of them rushing to greet him.

Later in the evening, the president attended the Magical Kenya Open Golf tournament at the Karen Country Club.

This is the second time in recent time that President Uhuru has been spotted driving himself after recently being pictured driving the same vehicle in traffic.

Five years ago, a police officer was stunned after stopping an unmarked car, only to find the president in the vehicle.

When the vehicle stopped, President Uhuru rolled down the window identifying himself before he was allowed to proceed by the perplexed officer.

“Ni mimi ofisa, fungua (it is me officer, allow us to go),” the President was heard saying.

A year ago, a video emerged on social media showing President Uhuru Kenyatta buying groundnuts along Uhuru Highway. In the video, Uhuru was seen talking to a couple of kids hawking groundnuts.

“Utanunua?” one of the children asked the president. “Tosha ya leo, nishanunua” Uhuru is heard responding as he chews groundnuts.

Afterwards, one of the kids requested Uhuru for money and the president removed a wad of notes from his trouser pocket before handing it over to the group, with instructions to share it among themselves.

“Mheshimiwa asante, Mungu akubariki” one of the children retorted. “Nawe pia” Uhuru responded.

We’ll continue giving money to churches, DP Ruto says

Published

on

Deputy President William Ruto has hit back at critics as the ‘dirty money’ in churches debate rages on.

Anglican Church Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit waded into the debate when he announced that the church will review donations by political leaders.

Sapit spoke against using pulpits to ‘clean’ stolen money in the guise of charitable donations.

But on Wednesday, Ruto said his faith comes first before ‘politician’ titles.

“Since Sunday school we learned to kneel before and worship GOD that’s the ONLY reason we stand before men,” he said.

“We will continue to worship Jehovah with our hearts and substance.”

Ruto added that he is not unashamed of his God and unapologetic of his faith.

“We are Christians first other titles after,” he added.

The churches spoke against the backdrop of a vicious debate on harambees in churches.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga hit out at corrupt leaders for turning churches into avenues of laundering money obtained illegally from public coffers.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka also cautioned clerics against accepting money suspected to be proceeds of corruption.

Although the two leaders did not name names, their statements could have been a veiled attack on Ruto over his huge donations in church fundraisers.

Ruto’s penchant for church donations has been a subject of heated debates, with a number of leaders questioning the source of the millions he has been using to bankroll church activities all over the country.

The DP has, however, remained unapologetic about helping religious institutions and fashioned himself as an evangelist dedicated to spreading the gospel and supporting churches – at one point saying he is investing in heaven.
