After sending his ally Senator Kipchumba Murkomen to attend the Mombasa BBI rally on Saturday Jan 26th, crafty Deputy President William Ruto has met his boss Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Standard reported that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto met during the installation service for the new head of Africa Inland Church (AIC) Bishop Abraham Mulwa on Sunday.

While addressing the congregation, President Uhuru pledged to support the church in their daily work in shaping the society.

“We seek to serve man, but man on earth without soul is no human being, hence the church plays a major role in saving souls,’ said President Uhuru.

He hailed the church for supporting the government in education and health sector and counseling the youth on how to live.

The two joined the faithful for a Sunday mass at Africa Inland Church (AIC) Milimani, a day after the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally attended by their allies.

The move to attend the same function caught Kenyans by surprise, following reports that their friendship is in the rocks over the 2022 succession politics.

The relationship has also been affected by emerging camps in the Jubilee government what Ruto has constantly blamed on the presence of Hon. Raila Odinga.

The suspicion is said to have led to the recent Cabinet reshuffle which saw those allied to DP Ruto kicked out.

The-talked-about tension was missing as the Ruto welcomed his boss in the church amid cheers from the congregation.

Also in attendance were Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.

Though Ruto did not attend the Mombasa BBI rally and had instead decide to attend a function in Cheregani in Trans Nzoia, his allies led by Murkomen attended the rally and supported the push for a referendum.

“It is no longer about us versus them, we are united. We have all agreed that we go for a referendum to pass the report,” Murkomen remarked

Also present at the Church were Attorney General Kihara Kariuki Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter and Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua.
