“Congratulations Her Excellency. The First Lady Mama Rachel Ruto. May the Lord God continue showering you with His grace. We love you,” responded one netizen to the photo.
The First Lady’s admiration has been expressed by a number of Kenyans including Guardian Angel’s wife, Esther Musila.
Mama Rachel is renowned for having a strong Christian foundation and for being a prayer warrior.
According to Esther, the trait is what she believes helps hold partners together.
In an interview with Sauti TV, the 52-year-old urged married women to follow Rachel Ruto’s example and emphasis praying for their husbands, citing this as one of Rachel Ruto’s most important lessons she has learned.
“I’ve learnt from mama Rachel is, as wives, let’s pray for our husbands. When we go down on our knees and pray for our husbands, that is what holds them together. It holds the family, it holds the nation. I’m so proud of her and I’m going to emulate her. I’ll pray for my husband, go down my knees and pray for him every day,” she expressed.
