William-Ruto-speaking at a past function

William Ruto is the most excellent and wonderful deputy president that this country has ever had (BTW, we have only had one).

The leader when not generously developing our churches also engages his critics. And there are those who don’t see the good things he has been doing as our immeasurable DP.

On Sunday this week, the politician made a faux pax when he quoted a non-existent Bible verse. Ruto quoted Matthew 6:35 while the verse he actually quoted was Matthew 6:33 as that particular chapter ends at verse 34!

Kenyans were quick to catch on. Some of their pithy comments from Twitter are below:

Kenya West: Forget quoting a nonexistent bible verse, my greatest concern is how the church allows the pulpit to be used in trading political insults. Isn’t there a line that must not be crossed. Insulting inside a church? Jameni
Olda: Even the devil quotes the Bible. Quoting means nothing ….doing what it advocates for means everything! End of conversation. New conversation
Wahinya Charlieβ„’: When the Lord decides to humiliate you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™Œ

Is the reaction he received fair or should our glorious DP never ever make a mistake?
