Angry Deputy President William Ruto has fired back at the Anglican Church of Kenya leader Archbishop Ole Sapit over his remark on corruption money finding its way to church for cleansing. The Archbishop said he will not allow God’s church to be used to clean dirty money from corrupt politicians.
In a tweet DP Ruto slapped the archbishop saying he only goes to Church to pray to God and not the church leaders.
“Since Sunday school we learned to kneel before and worship GOD that’s the ONLY reason we stand before men. We will continue to worship JEHOVAH with our hearts and substance. We are unashamed of our God & unapologetic of our faith. We are Christians first other title after.”

The archbishop who was speaking at a media briefing at the Multi-sectoral Iniative Against Corruption said it was evil to clean proceeds of corruption by donating to charity. His statement was a direct hit on DP Ruto who insists that he will continue donating millions to Churches in Kenya
“Let us not allow harambee money to become a subtle way of sanitizing corrupt leaders,”-the bishop said.
At the same briefing, Anglican Church leader vowed to rally his clergy and people of goodwill to fight corruption.
He also took a swipe at leaders who were undermining institutions that are mandated to fight corruption.
“State institutions mandated to fight corruption are deliberately being undermined, discredited, neglected or underfunded to weaken them. As Kenyans and God’s children, we must say no to those undermining those institutions and putting blocks against the war on corruption.” Sapit added
We were also taught about respect, honour and integrity; that success and victory only counts when earned fair and square; that it is wrong to cut corners; They taught us not to to look down on any community and to respect elders and honour our fathers and mothers.

We are not ashamed to quote 1 Corinthians 6:10
'Nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God'

You can't fool Kenyans anymore with this narrative… your bitterness and hatred towards some communities is so emminent and Kenyans can't risk your presidency… return the loots until then you are not liable for any office as from 2022

Yeah. We accepted colonial predecessors who paved the way for creating an enabling environment for the people to be taken for a ride to accept suffering and hope for a better life after death while those in the know loot and grab and amass wealth in THIS LIFE

Sir, Christianity is a poor man's college. Jesus Himself affirmed this when he ordered his disciples to dump all earthly things including family in order to be born again and serve the MOST HIGH. Humility is the middle name of any true follower of Jesus Christ son of Mary.

If you really mean what you are saying then declare your wealth and tell us about arror and kimwarer. Then tell us what is your sincere problem with the handshake sometimes honesty matters .
