The Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential candidate William Ruto has pledged to build a bigger chapel at State House if he becomes president.

Ruto was speaking on Sunday during a church service at Joy in Christ Fellowship Church, Gachororo, in Juja, Kiambu County.

Ruto claimed they built a chapel at the Deputy President’s official residence in Karen, Nairobi, but they faced challenges from quarters he did not mention.

He said he would build a bigger chapel so that Kenya can continue recognising the presence of God.

“We built one at the Hustlers’ Mansion, but we had challenges. I believe we will not build like the one we build at the mansion, we will build a bigger one so that this country can continue recognising the presence of God,” Ruto said.

The Deputy President appealed to the congregation to pray for the country to have a peaceful election.

“We are requesting you to pray for our country that we will have a peaceful election. We want to have an unprecedented election. An election where all of us will submit to the will of the people of Kenya and make our country move to the next level,” the DP said.

Other Kenya Kwanza-affiliated leaders who accompanied Ruto to the service in Juja include his running mate Rigathi Gachagua, Speaker Justin Muturi, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Juja MP George Koimburi, Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi,
