DP Ruto had joined other mourners in eulogizing Bishop’s Korir on November 11 as he was laid to rest in a church in Eldoret.
“My wife and children knew the Bishop very well because one day Bishop got a prayer and came home and taught us the Lord’s Prayer in a different way… how to say it seven times when in difficult times,” recalled DP Ruto.

His claims on the Bishop teaching him how to pray seem to have caught the attention of Kenyans who tweeted their views over it.Ruto also tweeted his last word on the loss of the Bishop.
Bishop Korir's teachings are fresh in our mind. He led us in vowing to never again go down the path of violence on account of political competition. #RIPBishopKorir— William Samoei Ruto (@WilliamsRuto) November 11, 2017

To me the way this politicians behave it's like there is no God. Maybe up there the extremely rich and our leaders know something we don't know about God's existence. My thoughts— onesmus mainga (@OnesmusMainga) November 12, 2017
Yes, Bishop Korir was a man of God and he practiced everything that he preached to his followers. But I am yet to see any Godly action from you despite mentioning God every time you open your mouth! Ain’t you scared Mocking God is dangerous— Ibrasom (@Ibrasom3) November 12, 2017
