- The DP was involved in a slight mishap during a church service in Kakamega
- He ended up quoting a non-existent bible verse in a rejoinder to COTU boss Francis Atwoli
- While meaning to quote Mathew Chapter 6 Verse 33 but ended up citing verse 35
It is not everyday one get to see Deputy President William Ruto show sloppiness, much less in public.
The DP was on the spot on Sunday, April 14, was caught offside in his precision of quoting bible verses as he cited a scripture which hawk-eyed congregants noticed did not exist.
While responding to Central Organization of Trade Unions boss Francis Atwoli’s remarks that he would never be president, Ruto quoted a bible verse which spoke along the likes of “seeking the kingdom of God”.
“Lakini hata na wao tunaomba muwaombee wajue ya kwamba Mathayo sita thelathini na tano, watafute kwanza ufalme wa Mungu. (We are requesting that you pray for them so that they know Mathew Chapter 6 Verse 35 says they must first seek the Kingdom of God,” he spoke at the Citadel Salvation Army Church in Kakamega.
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 bible.
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”.
One distinct character of the DP is the fact that he is very big on his religion and has consistently mentioned God in most of his public addresses.
