First Lady Rachel Ruto was the guest of honour at the gospel EP launch titled Fourth Man EP by 1005 Songs & More.

Besides celebrating the music at the listening party hosted at Weston Hotel on Friday, March 22 2024, she announced plans to establish a prayer committee for Kenyan police officers slated for deployment on the UN Security Council-backed mission to troubled Haiti.

“I have been held up in a meeting with some clergy friends of mine for two days discussing the issues of Haiti because we felt as the national alter that we cannot allow our police to go to Haiti without prayer So they have been strategising on a spiritual solution for our police and people of Haiti,” she said.

“We had pastors from Haiti and America and we are seeing how these three countries can come together to pray because we believe that with prayer everything is possible.”
