Clergy in North Rift hails aid to the Deputy President William Ruto on his close connection with churches and other places of worship adding that his cash donations and handouts help in the ministry.

Led by Bishop Simon Kemei said cash given to the church was purified and blessed regardless of its source.

Kimei on Tuesday rejected those questioned Ruto's generosity and asked the DP to lengthen the same to all churches, including those in his home region of North Rift.

" Bless the hand that gives and shall receive abundantly, " the Bishop said.

Ruto is also providing liberally in cash and employment tools to women, youth and others, empowering them to generate income.

“As clergy, we are very happy with what the DP is doing for churches because we believe he has been touched by the hand of God to see the need of the church and use the resources available to him so he can intervene and help," Kemei said.

“If the DP will come to my church, I will be very happy and receive him wholeheartedly. As a leader of the assemblage, I know we do not have musical instruments, we don’t have seats and we have many other needs that we know the DP can aid us in filling,” Kemei said.

Bishop John Korir and Pastor Joseph seconded Kemei statements on a different occasion. They said those accusing the DP of engaging in graft cannot judge anyone and should instead join hands in supporting God's work.

Some pastors have gone through hard times because of Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings and widespread economic hardship. Many parishioners have not been able to give to support their pastors.
Churches were closed for more than three months to prevent the spread of the virus.

Chairman of the region's clergy Bishop Wilson Kurui separately said the recent reopening of churches had helped religious leaders pray for God's intervention to help victims of the pandemic and make the disease subside.

"God always answers prayers and we believe he will wipe out the Covid-19 disease," Kurui said on Tuesday.

Last month Bishop Kurui revealed that more than 40 pastors in Eldoret were suffering acute deprivation in the pandemic and could not afford even food and meet their families' basic needs.
