Atwoli tells Deputy president to stop campaigning for presidency


The Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General Francis Atwoli attacked the  Deputy President William Ruto  at Bukhwala Seventh Day Adventist Church in Khwisero Constituency.

He told the deputy president to stop wasting his time campaigning for 2022 since he lacks the credibility to serve as the fifth president of Kenya.

He continued to say that the shouldn’t expect support from the Luhya community as much a he makes frequent visits to the area.

“If the deputy president thinks he can win the support of the Luhya community by frequenting western region to attend church functions and making donations, he is mistaken. Some of our leaders have become cheap and are busy chasing handouts,” said Mr Atwoli.

He told Dr Ruto to read the signs and stop dreaming of succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“I want to tell Dr Ruto that he has no place in the next government. He should stop running around in churches and dishing out huge donations,” said Mr Atwoli.

He also challenged the deputy president to tell citizens his source of money.

“Today, I want to tell the DP that he does not stand a chance of ascending the presidency in 2022. He should first tell Kenyans the source of his wealth before dreaming of becoming the next president.”
