The DP arrived at the stadium as the congregation sat attentively, listening to the sermon presided over by Pastor Samuel Mwaniki from the Central Rift Conference.

South Kenya Conference President Pastor Julius Bichanga, who welcomed the DP to the function, handed him a Bible as a gift. “We are guided by strong Church doctrines that we don’t encourage politics in the church and we have to spare the Sabbath to talk to our creator,” he said.

Speaking later, Ruto said construction of the headquarters had taken too long. According to a church committee, they needed Sh30 million to complete the works. The headquarters was commissioned in 2006 and various top leaders, including presidents, have contributed towards its construction.
