Nairobi - In a move seen as seeking divine intervention ahead of his trials for alleged crimes against humanity, Deputy President William Ruto hosted church prophet and founder, Uebert Angel on the latter’s birthday.
Ruto hosted Angel and his wife, Beverly in Nairobi on Friday.
The church announced on its Facebook page as saying, “We are very humbled by the humility that the Deputy President, his wife and the people of Kenya showed our father Prophet Uebert Angel. The Deputy President has showed an unbelievable love, fear and reverence of God and it takes great courage and humility for a man of his stature to respect the authority of God the supreme ruler.”
It added, “Our desire and prayer is that all men of authority, rulers in both the market place and politics can honour God almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ, so that peace, love and harmony may prevail in our continent.
“A nation that reverences and exalts the worship of the true God, that nation will God exalt,” the statement read.
Prophet Angel is the founder of the charismatic Spirit Embassy, which has branches in the United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Lesotho.
Ruto and President Kenyatta, are the co-accused in the 2007 political violence that rocked Kenya after disputed elections.
However, both Ruto and Kenyatta have vehemently denied allegations leveled against them. Last week, MPs voted to pull the country out of the ICC over the issue.
