President-Elect: William Ruto meets Religious Leaders of Kenya

The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya (EAK) led by the Chairperson Bishop Dr. David Oginde with other religious leaders visited the President-Elect William Ruto to congratulate him upon the successful completion of the 2022 general elections.

The faith leaders wished the President-Elect God’s wisdom, favour, and guidance as he takes up the responsibilities and challenges of the high office.

“We owe our victory in the just-concluded election to God. We will keep working with religious leaders to better the lives of Kenyans.” Hon. William Ruto, President-Elect told the leaders.

The President-Elect William Ruto has attributed his presidential victory to prayers, saying it would have not been possible to surmount the challenges he faced without divine intervention.

While speaking shortly after he was declared President Elect at the Bomas of Kenya on Monday,15th August,  Hon. Ruto said “I was prayed to victory.”

Ruto who has often declared his Christian faith in public, has not shied away from openly expressing his emotions occasionally telling his opponents he had more to thank God for.

The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya called upon all Kenyans to continue embracing our rich heritage through respect for diversity and peaceful coexistence.

The Religious leaders who met at the Deputy President Karen residence included Archbishop Philip Anyolo, Archbishop Anthony Muheria, SUPKEM national Chairman Hassan Ole Naado, Bishop Robert Langát, Bishop Ogonyo Ngede, Bishop Joseph Ntombura, Bishop Mark Kariuki, Bishop Kepha Omae, Retired Bishop Silas Yego, among others.

The President-Elect later met with the Kenya Kwanza elected leaders and pledged to work for all Kenyans by going out to deliver on their pledges. He however, called on the public servants who have been forced to take political positions in the just concluded elections to step back and be professional public servants and serve all Kenyans equally.

“Public servants will not be available to carry out political work for any political party, it is the only way we can have a government that delivers.”

In what could be interpreted  as a reaction to the Azimio-One Kenya Alliance statement issued by Hon. Raila Odinga on Tuesday 16th August, at the KICC, the President Elect said,

“If there will be court processes, we will engage in those because we are democrats and we believe in the rule of law.”

He finalised by saying that they will be recommending the Kenya Kwanza team members to the Assumption of Office of the President Committee chaired by Joseph Kinyua to assist in planning the transition process.


  1. it is great to see the evangelical leaders untied for peace. We pray that the next government will harmoniously work with them for a better tomorrow.
