When Deputy President William Ruto attended a church service in Thika on Sunday, June 17, he referred to a verse in the Bible which urges believers to store their treasures in heaven and not on earth where moths and vermin could destroy them.

 He used this in his defense against the Opposition's criticism of his regular fundraising activities in churches, emphasizing that he was "investing in heavenly matters". 

On Tuesday, June 19, Midiwo in a thinly veiled attack against Ruto claimed the DP was using funds acquired through dubious means to sustain his funds' drives and other activities where he was dishing money, adding he did not qualify to get to heaven. 

Midiwo further ridiculed Ruto's sentiments saying all Kenyans would make it to heaven if indeed the DP was heaven bound based on his character and actions.

The former MP opposed Ruto's view and used the scripture which states that it would be difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. 

Midiwo added that if William Ruto's deeds were heavenly then all Kenyans were qualified to get to heaven. 

He also said he did not believe the lifestyle audit on all public servants directive by President Uhuru Kenyatta would help much in the war against graft alleging the Head of State was not himself clean.
