Central Organization Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli has finally revealed the reason why some Kenyans, especially those on social media platforms hate him so much.
In the recent past, the vocal Trade Unionist has been the talk of the town, after the vandalization of a road sign on a Nairobi road renamed after him.
Those who have been in the front line in mocking the trade unionists are prominent persons and politicians impeded to his ideologies and majority being Deputy President William Ruto allies.
Atwoli now claims that those fighting him are not doing so because of anything significant but fighting him because of his ethnic group, terming it a disastrous tribal issue.
“We should learn to stop the habit of bashing things for the sake of it. Most of the criticisms are without doubt thinly veiled tribalism. This is not good for multicultural and multi-religious society,” Atwoli stated.
The outspoken Trade Unionist also emphasized the need for Kenyans to commemorate prominent people in the society like him when they are still alive.
He further acknowledged that the same way the late former President Jomo Kenyatta and his successor Daniel Moi celebrated to date, is the same way all Kenyan leaders should be treated as a show of gratitude for what they are doing to build the nation.
“There is nothing wrong with honoring great men and women that this country has produced when they are still alive just as much as there is nothing wrong with reviewing and honoring a deceased person,” he added.
Atwoli remains one of the prominent persons in the country especially in the political field where he is seen as an influential battalion very close to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Atwoli’s allegiance to President Kenyatta is the reason why he is not on good terms with DP Ruto’s allies and his frequent attacks on the DP and declarations that the DP will not secure the top seat in the next general polls.
