Atheists call out on Rachel Ruto after hosting a prophet in State house.
First lady, Rachel Ruto took to her social media to announce that a prophet from Ghana paid her a courtesy visit.
She said,” Met prophet Victor Kusi Boateng from Power Chapel Worldwide Ghana, who paid me a courtesy call at State House, Nairobi.
Atheists call out on Rachel Ruto saying, the first lady is breaching the Constitution and propagating foreign religious beliefs in the country.
They further outlined that Kenya is a free state and it is not right to portray it as an all christian nation.
They said,” It is unacceptable for First Lady Rachel Ruto to host Prophet Dr. Ian Ndlovu and Prophet Victor Kusi Boateng at State House, Nairobi, barely a day after President William Ruto takes oath of office
They added,”We would like to caution her to desist from these flagrant abuses of religious freedom. Kenya comprises citizens who hold different religious beliefs including Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and atheists. First Lady Rachel Ruto should not assume that Christianity is the only religion in Kenya.”
The atheist society further stated that the first family should hold their religious endeavours in other venues apart from the state house.
They said,” The State House, which is the official residence of the President, should be used for state functions only, and not religious functions. This goes against Articles 8 and 32 of our Constitution.”
This comes after Reuben Kigame called out on the first family for over doing christianity making other religions feel sidelined.
Reuben said,” I think the Ruto administration is overdoing religion. While we acknowledge the hand of God in bringing us this far, the presidency must observe Article 27 of the Constitution.
He added,”The church should play a neutral, prophetic, balanced and truthful role in order to provide a true spiritual direction for the country. It should congratulate the king but also be prepared to tell the king that he is naked should he be.”
