Ruto, who spoke in Machakos during a fundraiser in aid of Africa Inland Church (AIC) Katisaa asked Kenyans to reject leaders with no development agenda, but are on good at playing hate politics.

The DP said some of his political rivals had been 'largely uncomfortable whenever he supports church projects.

"We have read the Bible and we have understood what we are called to do, nobody should be forced to give to God. Someone should not give us lectures on what to do," said Ruto.
