Tuesday June 18, 2019 - The founder and spiritual father at House of Hope church, Kayole, Nairobi, Pastor Godfrey Migwi, has lambasted President Uhuru Kenyatta following his outburst directed on his Deputy, William Ruto, last Sunday.
In a blistering defence of Ruto, the pastor declared that despite Uhuru's new found alliance with the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, the people of Mt. Kenya would not be bullied into backing anyone.
"Maybe there was an agreement between your fathers in their heydays in politics which you may want to impose on Mt. Kenyans by force, what I know is that the people of Mt. Kenya will never swallow anything by force," an excerpt of the letter addressed to the President disclosed.
He also urged Uhuru to grant his deputy all the respect his office demands whatever his personal views regarding him as an individual were.
"Even if Hon William Samoei Ruto as a person is not fit or good to some people politically or his lifestyle, the facts remain he is the Deputy President of this Republic, he deserves total respect as the second in command," the pastor reiterated.
Pastor Migwi went on to warn the President to avoid talking to his elders in anger lest they decide to turn their back on him.
The man of God cautioned Uhuru to get a grip of his anger as his words resonated with a lot of people across the country.
"Mr. President, manage your anger you’re a role model to many young people in this country any word you utter means a lot to this generation," he cautioned.
