Why Rachel Ruto Has Set Up Special Prayer Team ahead of Haiti Mission

First Lady Rachel Ruto has announced the formation of a special intercessory team to support Kenyan police as they prepare for the peacekeeping operation in Haiti.

During a gospel event at the Weston Hotel, Rachel confessed that she was involved in the intensive planning to build the prayer team long before the crew flew to the Caribbean.

According to her, the law enforcement officers would require prayers to complete their mission.


The team consisted of intercessors from Kenya, the United States, and Haiti, she claimed.

“Some friends of ours have been holed up in a meeting for two days discussing the issues of Haiti because we felt at the national altar that we cannot allow our police to go to Haiti without prayer. So they have been strategising on a spiritual solution and prayer for our police as they go to Haiti and pray for the people there,” she said.

“We were in that meeting where he had pastors from Haiti and America, and saw how these countries can come together to pray because with prayer everything is possible,” added Rachel.

Meanwhile, Kenya was forced to postpone the Haiti deployment following the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry on March 11, after weeks of pressure and rising violence.

According to Kenya’s Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary, Korir Singoei, Nairobi could not proceed with the police deployment to Haiti until there was a political administration to support the operation.

The Kenyan government would now have to wait for a new constitutional authority to be established before making any further decisions regarding officer deployment.

On March 1, Kenya and Haiti signed an agreement formally deploying 1,000 police personnel to the North American nation.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki and his Haitian counterpart signed the agreement at State House Nairobi.

“I am pleased to inform you that Prime Minister Ariel Henri and I have witnessed the signing of this instrument. We have also discussed the next steps to enable the fast-tracking of the deployment,” Ruto said in a statement.

On January 26, the High Court barred the deployment of Kenyan officers to Haiti, citing a lack of authorization by the National Security Council to send police officers outside the nation.
