ODM leader Raila Odinga’s daughter, Winnie Odinga has challenged Deputy President William Ruto’s wife, Rachel Ruto to pray for the purification of water in Nairobi River.
This follows a recent confession by the deputy president’s wife that she prayed for the purification of water at a well in her Karen home.
This, Rachel claimed, happened during a prayer meeting at her home in Karen, Nairobi.
The confession sparked mixed reactions across social media with Embakasi East MP Babu Owino urging her to pray for the DP.
“Mama Rachel please pray for Ruto’s dark soul to be clean then will believe your miracles,” the MP said.
Reacting to the post, Winnie also challenged Rachel to pray for the purification of Nairobi River.
“Yawa, afadhali aende Nairobi River acheze kama yeye,” she said.
On Saturday, Rachel claimed she prayed for dirty water in a borehole located in their private Karen residence and it was purified.
She said it all began in 2018 while on a flight from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) back to Nairobi when she landed her hands on a scripture that was talking about baren women.
“When the Lord spoke to me about this verse and this story of Jericho in 2018, I remembered about our water here in Karen
“We drilled a borehole in 2003. When the water was taken to the lab for testing, they told us we could not drink that water unless it was purified,” she said.
She said Ruto bought expensive purifying machines and they occasionally changed filters but all was in vain as the water still had impurities.
On Wednesday last week which is their day of prayer and fasting, she said she went to their private residence to see what was happening there.
Rachel said she went to the kitchen, took a bowl, put salt and went to the borehole. At the site, she decreed the words of Elisha.
“I said, ‘this water, will never be dirty again’ and I sprayed the water around the borehole,” she said.
After two days, she said she noticed the water was looking very different and called her helpers to witness.
