Speaking in Suswa on Sunday, he said that the country was fundamentally a country that worships God and that will not change going forward.

"This Kenya will not be changed as a country that worships God. (Kenya hii haiwezi kubadilishwa msimamo wetu kama nci ambayo inamcha Mungu), " the deputy president said

Ruto said that scores of leaders were intoxicated by power and titles to the point of forgetting that there is a God.

A few days ago he inaugurated a worship centre at his Karen home. 

The country's second most powerful person after president Uhuru Kenyatta has long styled himself as a church-going and God-loving politician.

He has been donating huge sums of money to the tune of millions of shillings to churches, saying it is his duty as a staunch Christian to do so.

DP Ruto's words appeared to be a jibe at his critics who have taken issue with his huge church donations.

Veteran opposition and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga and his allies have accused the deputy president of making questionable donations.

There has been a public discourse on whether to limit the amount that politicians can donate to religious institutions.
