‘We Shall Finish The Journey Together’: Bishop Wanjiru Changes Tune After Stern Warning To Ruto, Gachagua

Written by on March 9, 2024

Bishop Margaret Wanjiru of the Jesus is Alive Ministries has rescinded her earlier sentiments directed towards President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua following a raid on her church premises by police officers this week.

Taking to her official social media account on Friday evening, in a seemingly apologetic gesture, the outspoken Bishop shared a warm message about her longstanding friendship with the country’s top two in command, expressing her willingness to continue working with them.

Wanjiru, who had previously rebuked the two leaders blaming them for her predicament, also shared a photo with the Head of State taken during the run-up to the 2022 General Election.

 “I have much respect and love for His Excellency Dr William Ruto, our Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and their families. We started this journey towards building a better and more prosperous Nation together and we shall finish well, together,” she wrote on X.

The sentiments come after Bishop Wanjiru, while in the company of church members, regretfully expressed her anguish and frustration towards the Kenya Kwanza leadership that she said she had dearly supported to power.

She ended her Thursday address, in the aftermath of the confrontation with law enforcement officials, hinting at a fallout with President Ruto and DP Gachagua.

“I was one of the founding members of UDA. I campaigned for a whole year when others came to just steal what I had worked for, yet I let go,” declared Wanjiru.

“I have loved you, my president. I have loved you, my deputy president. I have loved your family. When you call, I obey. But behold, from this day… tables are turning.” 

The parcel of land on which Bishop Wanjiru’s Jesus is Alive Ministries church sits is claimed to be one of the prime public lands in Nairobi’s Central Business District targeted for recovery by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

EACC on Thursday said it had filed several cases in Nairobi’s Environment and Land Court against private entities and former Land Commissioners accused of engaging in questionable real estate transactions.

Some of the lands in question included the one owned by Bishop Wanjiru and Neno Evangelism Center linked to Pastor James Maina Nganga.
