President-elect William Ruto revealed details of a family tradition that he and his wife Mama Rachel Ruto perform every morning before leaving his Karen residence.

In a speech to the media on Monday, September 5, Ruto stated that Rachel always holds his hands and says a prayer before leaving the house.

He said it was the prayers of the presidential candidate and other TBEN that made him win the August 9 polls.

“I want to thank my wife Rachel who prays for me every day. Before I leave the door of the house behind me (pointing to the Karen residence) she prays for me.

“I also thank my children for believing in me and always supporting me,” he said.

Ruto noted that he and his allies faced a lot of harassment during the election period, adding that the prayers kept them through the times he described as challenging.

“Many special thanks go to my friends who started this journey with me under very difficult circumstances. Many of you have suffered for supporting me. The only crime you committed was supporting your friend,” he stated.

“As written in Hebrews 10:23, let us hold fast without wavering in the hope that we affirm that God can be trusted to keep His promise,” she declared.
