Simba Arati leads prayer session in line with Ruto’s Nyayo stadium prayer rally
Written by Inka FM on 15 February 2023
Governor Simba Arati has today presided over a prayer session at the Kisii county assembly.
The county head claimed that the session was in line with President Willliam Ruto’s mega prayer rally in Nyayo stadium that was organized to address the country’s drought and hunger situation.
“Greatly honoured to grace the inaugural prayer breakfast for the Kisii County assembly, where we sought divine intervention in our day-to-day endeavor in public service. The session is in line with the prayer made by our President, His Excellency President William Ruto,” Arati stated.
The ODM county chief also took the platform to welcome the Head of State to Kisii ahead of his projects tour in the South Nyanza county.
Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua are expected to grace Education CS Ezekiel Machogu’s homecoming ceremony in Kisii late this month.
“I took the opportunity to welcome President William Ruto to Kisii for a ‘meet the people development tour” and appealed to all Kenyans to support the President in his development agenda for Kenya,” Arati said.
Arati’s welcoming message comes days after Gusii leaders, led by former Kisii Governor James Ongwae cautioned ODM Leader Raila Odinga against holding an anti-government rally in their region.
Ongwae and his brigade also hit out at Raila for using a false report on an alleged police raid at former Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiang’i as a strategic move to seek sympathy among Kisii locals.
“We as Omogusii leaders reject any attempt by Raila and his puppet Matiangi to turn us against our president. It will not happen! We also condemn the so-called maandamanos and warn Raila to restrict them to Luo Nyanza, not Kisii,” he said.
“Machogu’s homecoming will still be there, we believe that Omogusii will come out in large numbers to welcome H.E William Ruto to Gusii. Nothing, no amount of intimidation will turn us against our beloved president and our minister.”
