I am known to not like politicians


But occasionally I can agree with them. And this is one of those instances where I agree with the sentiments of one of the presidential candidate in the just concluded plebiscite.

Reuben Kigame, who is an evangelical Christian has said the Ruto team is overdoing religion. In his own words

I know I will be bashed but I need to be truthful and accountable to the nation. I think the Ruto administration is overdoing religion

and this is just the first week of the administration. You maybe wondering why he said this. Again, we will just defer to him

“over-representation” of the evangelical wing of the church during his inauguration and that of his deputy Rigathi Gachagua on Tuesday was unnecessary.

And he has more.

I am a committed Christian who believes in prayer and believe God has helped us this far and will continue to trust Him for the future of Kenya. But I hope that issues such as lowering food prices will not be met with State House saying, “letโ€™s pray about it,”

He was right on the backlash because our morality police, Ezekiel Mutua- I hope you remember him- responded thus

We had sunk so low and thrown morality to the dogs. We cannot have too much of God, provided we also work hard!

I pray to the dead gods that we be spared a theocracy.

The article has comments. Some are weep inducing.

    The optimistic attitude of your candidate is much admired. However, everyone should also keep in mind that the “theocracy-crats” connive and conspire continuously to cause chaos and havoc among those they perceive as the enemy. Have a great weekend, my Kenyan brother! ๐Ÿ™‚ Naked hugs!

    Is Ruto really that religious or is he just instrumentalizing religion? I don’t know enough about him, but I don’t trust politicians especially if they pray. There are those who believe it, and if they are religious it is terrible. Then there are those who don’t believe and just pretend and that is terrible as well. Which sort is he?
