DP William Ruto: I'm 'nostalgic' about going to Heaven

What is the first thing you will do when you go to heaven? Well, Deputy President William Ruto has an idea about how he is going to spend some of his time in Paradise.

Speaking during the 14th National Prayer Breakfast held at Safari Park Friday morning, Ruto stated that whenever he goes for the prayers, he feels ‘nostalgic about going to heaven’.

“You know, Heaven is going to be interesting; we will have all these people. The last time I was here, I was talking about my friend Baba Yao (Ferdinand Waititu) and my brother Jakoyo Midiwo, but today I also saw  Daniel Maanzo (Makueni MP), I listened to him very carefully when was reading the prayer here. And I remembered those days when Daniel Maanzo made us party-less,” said Ruto amid laughter.

“And I think when we get to heaven, I will ask him a few questions, because one evening he ran away with ODM-Kenya and  then we were stranded and the elections were just around the corner. So Heaven is really going to be very interesting,” he added.

The Deputy President’s statements filled the room with laughter as he referred to the antics the Makueni MP in 2007.

Maanzo was at the time seen as a cunning man who ran away with the certificate of the initial ODM-Kenya, leaving Raila Odinga without a party towards the 2007 elections in which he was running for the top seat.

The National Prayer Breakfast event, at Safari Park Hotel, brings together leaders from across the political divide to reaffirm their commitment to God and dedicate the country to divine protection.
