Ruto will spend the night at Sheraton hotel ahead of tomorrow’s event.
The prayer breakfast will be held at hotel Africana in the capital Kampala.
President Yoweri Museveni will be the chief guest at the event.
According to the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, Ruto was chosen to deliver a key note address because of his strong religious background that is not known by many yet it is so inspiring.
Kadaga describes Ruto as a man who has cut the image of a hardened political mobiliser gifted in the powers of oration.
“As the head of the choir at a local church, he said a moving prayer that caught the eye of the then president Arap Moi.”
“It gives us the opportunity to ask God for guidance and express our gratitude for what he has given us,” Kadaga is quoted by New Vision as saying.
At the breakfast, Dr. Monica Musenero the current assistant commissioner Epidemiology and surveillance in the ministry of health will also share her story how she battled the deadly Ebola Virus to save millions in Sierra Leone.
