In a statement dated Saturday, May 7, Harrison Mumia, the association’s president, called on Mama Racheal to visit unclean water boreholes and perform similar miracles.
Mumia stated that if Mama Racheal performed similar miracles, it would help ascertain her claims.
“The wife of the Deputy President, Rachel Ruto, has sensationally claimed during a prayer session with clergy from Evangelical Churches at their Karen residence that she prayed for dirty water from their borehole and it was purified.
“If Rachel Ruto wants Kenyans to believe her claim, she should replicate the same miracle in many other dirty boreholes across the country, and purify the water within them in a manner that is scientifically verifiable,” stated Atheists in a statement.
The association accused the DP’s wife of lying to Kenyans stating that miracles were not scientifically proven.
“Rachel Ruto is either lying or mistaken. The fact that she says a miracle happened does not make it true. Otherwise, she should desist from hoodwinking the public into believing that miracles are genuine,” read the statement in part.
The statement by the association comes barely hours after Mama Racheal narrated how water at their residence in Karen was purified by praying and pouring salty water in the borehole.
She stated that the water in their borehole still had impurities despite Ruto investing in expensive purifiers.
“I went and decreed the words of Elisha. I went and said this water will never be dirty again and I spread the salty water around the borehole. It was about to rain, so I ran quickly and went to the house,” Mama Rachel narrated.
“I came back home on Friday and went to the residence on the other side because I had some guests. On arrival, I saw the water was looking different. So I waited for the guests to leave and I asked my boy, Shadrack, what had happened to the water.” she stated.
During the prayer meeting at the DP official residence, Mama Racheal was accompanied by Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi, Mathira Member of Parliament, Rigathi Gachagua, and other Kenya Kwanza leaders.
