Speaking at the Citadel Salvation Army Church in Kakamega on Sunday, DP 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. (We request that you pray for them so that they may know that Mathew 6:35 says they must first seek the Kingdom of God. They should leave these other things that destroy our Country," Ruto said.
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.
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.
