Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Thursday, February 2, announced plans by the government to hold a national prayer rally on February 12.
The DP made the announcement after a meeting with a host of governors from the Rift Valley Region who, according to him, will be the hosts of the prayers. The governors, led by Nakuru's Susan Kihika, briefed Gachagua on the state of preparations for the rally.
Also present in the meeting were Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii, Kericho's Eric Mutai, Nandi's Stephen Sang and Hilary Barchok of Bomet County.Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua during his meeting with governors from the Rift Valley region on February 2, 2023.Rigathi Gachagua
President William Ruto, according to Gachagua, will lead Kenyans from all parts of the country in the prayer rally expected to feature clergymen from the denominations in Kenya.
He noted that the prayers will focus on, among others, interceding for Kenya's economic recovery and saving the youth from the menace of drug abuse and illicit brews.
In addition, the organisers of the prayer rally have envisaged an ideal moment to give thanks for the peaceful election period in 2022.
"Prayers will be offered for a fast economic recovery as well as for saving our youth from illicit brews and drug abuse.
The clergy will also pray for the healing of the nation from the scourge of cancer and for peace and security for all communities to live together in harmony," he stated.
Gachagua's announcement of the meeting came amid heightened efforts by the Kenya Kwanza administration aimed at combating the sale and consumption of illicit brews in parts of Kenya.
The government has also been subjected to pressure to ease the cost of living amid the tough economic conditions.
Shortly after assuming power, the President vowed to end subsidy programs on consumption, a move adopted by the previous administration to cushion Kenyans from the high cost of basic products.
In his response to critics of his economic recovery agenda, Ruto asserted the road to recovery would be a tough terrain as Kenyans would have to bear the high cost for the results to be achieved.
However, the Head of State affirmed that the nation would eventually realise the fruits of the tough decisions.President William Ruto during a thanksgiving service at the Ole Ntimama Stadium in Narok County on January 29, 2023.Rigathi Gachaguadrug abuse
