Presidential aspirant 2022 and gospel musician Reuben Kigame has pointed fingers at President William Ruto over his overwhelming embrace of religious activities that have characterized his government and his campaigns. Kigame has faulted the representation of the evangelical wing during the inauguration ceremony ny. He further stated that the church should be neutral in guiding the country’s spirituality.
Reuben Kigame stated “I know I will be bashed but I need to be truthful and accountable to the nation. I think the Ruto administration is overdoing religion. While we acknowledge the hand of God in bringing us this far, presidency must observe Article 27 of the constitution.
During the inauguration, the evangelical wing of the church was overrepresented. this was unnecessary. I do not know what the transition committee intended to prove to Kenya and the watching world.
I am a committed Christian who believes in prayer and believe God has helped us this far and Will continue to trust Him for the future of Kenya, but I hope that issues such as lowering food prices will not be met with State house saying, “let’s pray about it.“
I strongly believe that the church should play A neutral, prophetic, balanced and truthful role in order to provide a true spiritual direction for the country. it should congratulate the king but also be prepared to tell the king that he is naked should he be.”
