Power blackout disrupts Ruto speech during the centenary celebrations of the African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA).

President William Ruto’s speech during the centenary celebrations of the African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA) was momentarily disrupted following a power blackout.

The president had taken over the podium at the Kasarani Indoor Arena after being invited by his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua.

Ruto was outlining the journey he had walked with the leadership of the AIPCA church, praising his deputy for coordinating things between the government and the church, when the lights and the sound systems went off.

The discomfort following the outage was evident as the leaders behind the president looked around, perhaps devising a solution to the unforeseen challenge.

He paused his speech as he waited in the non-illuminated venue.

The electricity returned a few minutes later, and the president continued with his speech.

While hailing the AIPCA church for its contribution to the development of the country, Ruto pledged the government’s support to it.

He noted that the church was at the forefront of promoting education through the many learning institutions it manages.

“You have our support as a government. I want to thank you for all the plans we have for our country. The contribution of the AIPCA church in matters of education is evident. The church is helping us in managing our education,” he said.

Further, the president promised to acquire land and put up an ultra-modern AIPCA church.

This comes days after another President Ruto was forced to deliver his speech in darkness after two power outages at the closing stages of the National Executive Retreat in Naivasha.

Ruto was addressing Cabinet Secretaries, and was explaining his government’s agenda and why he chose them to help him deliver his mandate when lights went off.

The Head of State could be heard struggling to deliver his speech momentarily before the lights were restored.

“The reason why I appointed you is that I knew you have the capacity to do the job you are doing,” Ruto stated before a power outage was experienced.

The incident occurred twice within five minutes, the second one occurring just when he was about to end his speech.
