SUMMARY

The letter comes days after the online fraternity trolled Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa for turning a Christian hymn song into a Dp Ruto-praise-song

Angry netizens termed her song rendition as blasphemous and needed to apologize

Pastor Godfrey Migwi of the House of Hope Church in Nairobi penned down an open letter to Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday 21 May and asked him to tell his supporters to stop ‘worshiping’ him.

The letter comes days after the online fraternity trolled Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa for turning a Christian hymn song into a Dp Ruto-praise-song.


Over the weekend, the legislator, during a church function in Bungoma County sang the popular ‘Hakuna wa kufana na Yesu’ (There’s no one like Jesus) but instead, she sang ‘Hakuna wa kufana na Ruto’ (There’s no one like Ruto).

Angry netizens termed her song rendition as blasphemous and needed to apologize.

Pastor Migwi also echoed the views of the Kenyans on social media adding that the MP had gone too far.

“My message is very simple and clear, it’s an advice to you and your die hard supporters please My honor stop them for praising you like God, the types of Aisha’s have gone too far, they must separate politics with blasphemous act, “read part of the letter.

The Pastor also posed a question to the Deputy President and asked him why he allowed MP Aisha to praise him like a ‘god’.

“Malindi MP hon Aisha Jumwa did something unusual to the body of Christ by using worship song hakuna wa kufanana na Mungu to praise you, for sure you’re not god and I know you know that, and everyone knows. Why Mr Deputy president did you allow MP Aisha to praise you like god when poor worshipers and church leaders cheered in your presence? Pastor Mwigi asked.

Here’s is Pastor Mwigi’s full letter;
