Deputy President William Ruto, fondly known for large sum contributions to churches, has opened a National Prayer altar at his residence in Karen, Nairobi County.

The church which was launched on Wednesday by Dr Ruto and his wife Rachel Ruto has been under construction since August 22, 2018 when the DP laid the foundation stone.

The opening ceremony of the church was attended by Reverend Teresa Wairimu, Bishop Mark Kariuki, KFCB CEO, Ezekiel Mutua, Citizen TV’s Victoria Rubadiri and Joe Ageyo among others.

Mrs Ruto took it to the social media platforms to express gratitude for the construction of the altar and quoted the Bible while at it.

The Deputy President has been on the receiving end of some leaders who question his constant presence in church functions and generous donations during harambees.

However, Mr Ruto has brushed the the comments off maintaining that he will not stop supporting the work of God.

His wife is also known as a convener of religious gatherings meant to pray for the country.
