Mutahi Ngunyi supports Archbishop Ole Sapit following criticism by government allies as he accuses President Ruto of failing Kenyans.
Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has come to the defence of the Anglican Church of Kenya Bishop Jackson Ole Sapit.
Ngunyi advised the Head of State William Ruto in a statement on the X Platform not to view the Anglican Bishop as an enemy since he is telling him the truth.
Ngunyi, former aide to Uhuru Kenyatta claims that the President has not made much progress during his first year in office and that he has to reconsider his plan for enhancing Kenyans’ quality of life.
“Dear Ruto: Bishop Ole Sapit t is not an enemy. He is the voice of Kenyans who like you. After one year and a 3 trillion Budget, what have you achieved?” he posed.
Ngunyi further said the ACK Bishop was being honest with the president by giving him the best strategy to get things done going forward.
“The good Bishop is giving you a way out. He is telling you to change tact. Stories like ‘no Kibera in ten years’ are Not believable,” Ngunyi added.
Ngunyi statement comes after Kikuyu MP and National Assembly Leader of Majority Kimani Ichung’wah claimed Ole Sapit is a gun for hire following his recent criticism of Ruto government over the high cost of living.
“It’s okay for religious leaders to correct the government but some of you are becoming abusive. We know Ole Sapit campaigned for Raila. We respect Ole Sapit but let him not be blind to the reality of the country today. We’re not asking for his support, we are asking for his prayers,” he added.
Bishop Ole Sapit had slammed the government for overpromising Kenyans yet they could not deliver.
He said the government should come out and be honest to Kenyans and say what they promised is impossible to deliver and chart an alternative path that is achievable.
