Ruto blasts the government over public gathering rules

Deputy President William Ruto lashed out at the government for restricting public gatherings in the country.

Ruto was speaking on Sunday the 25th of October 2020 while at a church service in Our Lady of Assumption, Indangalasia Catholic Church, Kakamega.

The second in command blasted the National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) further condemning the restriction on visiting churches.

“We will not accept the restriction of church services in the country; worship should not be restricted in any way. You cannot be restricted to worship, hold prayer meetings until someone issues a go-ahead,” Ruto said.

Further adding,

“That is not possible. I want to tell those who think our constitutional right to worship God in the manner that we please is going to be conditioned in permission from whoever.”

I don’t need your permission.

Not one to sway from what he believes, Ruto defiantly announced he would continue visiting churches. According to him, he does not need to seek permission to attend church services.

Ruto further added that he attends church services because he believes in God. He then condemned the government for limiting citizens’ right to worship.

The second in command went on to note that it is impossible to negotiate on religion matters.

“I want to remind government officials, the Jubilee government was formed after prayers for I and Uhuru, we cannot be the same government announcing restrictions on worship.”

“I want to ask public officers, to keep off matters of worship because they are not negotiable, we cannot negotiate on matters to do with worship with anybody or any law,” Ruto said.

Ruto’s visit to the Our Lady of Assumption, Indangalasia Catholic Church was supposed to be on March. However, he had to postpone it after the coronavirus pandemic hit the nation. The police also recently refused to approve Ruto’s visit to the church.
