BY DPPS/KORIR JUMA,6TH JULY 2018-Deputy President William Ruto has reaffirmed his commitment to support the ongoing efforts to unite the country led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.The deputy president says the Jubilee Government is determined to lead a cohesive nation.
“You know salvation is a good thing. There are those who accept Christ today, others will do so tomorrow but they will all get to heaven. No one gets locked out of heaven because they got saved last,” Ruto said.
“So please, those of you who accepted salvation ahead of others don’t act as roadblocks to those who want salvation today. Let’s accept them in so that we all go to heaven,” he petitioned.
Ruto who was speaking in Bumula where he presented a bus to the Joy Valley Special School said the ruling party’s goal was to reach out to all Kenyans regardless of their political inclinations.
He said all Kenyans must commit to working together for the betterment of the nation.
“The people who joined the Jubilee Party ahead of others did well. We have Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, National Assembly Chief Whip Benjamin Washiali but we must welcome others who also want to work with the government including the former Senate Minority Leader Moses Wetangula,” Ruto said amid laughter.
He urged supporters of the ruling party to accommodate those willing to work with the government without reservations.
“Jesus did not tell us there’s an accommodation crisis in heaven. He said there’s enough room,” Ruto humorously told the crowd.
On his part Senate Speaker Lusaka commended Ruto for backing the unity agenda birthed on March 9 when President Kenyatta and his former arch-rival Odinga shook hands on the steps of Harambee House after agreeing to a political truce that ended months of civil disobedience.
