President William Ruto is attending a church service at Nandi County this Sunday.
The Interdenominational church service is being held Kapsabet showground.
He was accompanied by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, and Roads and Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen among others.
The service comes a day before the mega-planned protest by the Opposition in Nairobi.
Raila declared the start of mass action to mount pressure on the government to institute measures to lower the cost of living.
He had maintained that they will peacefully march to the State House to present their petitions to President William Ruto.
Religious leaders have also appeared divided over anti-government demonstrations planned for tomorrow.
Those who have opposed the demos included cleric Neophyton Kang’ai of St Peter’s Orthodox Church who said President William Ruto should be given time to work.
“The country is not ready for mass action owing to the current economic hardships. Let us give the President time to address the myriad of challenges facing the country,” Kang'ai said.
On the other hand, The National Council of Churches has backed the March 20 mass action called by Azimio leader Raila Odinga to protest against the rising cost of living.
In a press statement on Wednesday, Nyanza regional NCCK chairman Bishop David Kodia said the Kenya Kwanza government appears helpless in the face of the rising cost of basic commodities.
Raila on Saturday however clarified that only a few individuals will walk into the State House if allowed.
"We will hand over our petition to the President wherever he will be, but peacefully… If he will be at State House, only two or three people will walk into State House to go and present the petition," he said while speaking in an interview with Citizen TV.
However, President William Ruto has remained unshaken, and unbothered and vowed not to allow any attempts whatsoever by Opposition leader Raila Odinga to blackmail the country.
