In the latest election results where Raila Odinga lost to William Ruto. It’s not just a loss for Raila Odinga but also for his close allies. The one person who can be said to have suffered the biggest loss of his allies is Francis Atwoli.
The COTU Secretary General started making it clear that William Ruto will not be the President of Kenya come 2022 as early as 2014. Atwoli made it clear that he will never support Ruto and has no interest to work with him.
In his consecutive press briefing where he even referred to the former Deputy President as a thief. Atwoli even stated that Ruto has no respect for his seniors. This he said as Ruto was in a constant war of words with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The election came by and passed and the result didn’t go according to Atwoli’s prophecy. William Ruto emerged the winner and Atwoli has been silent ever since.
In a move by William Ruto’s data strategist Denis Itumbi to get Atwoli to talk. Itumbi tweeted that Atwoli was set to resign and even held a meeting of the same. In response to dismissing Itumbi’s claims, Atwoli tweeted. “This is a sad moment for us following the death of Bro. Isaiah Kubali who was the GS of BIFA. We have called the fundraiser in preparation for the burial on Friday in Meru. Because you Itumbi comes from those sides you should join us instead of peddling lies.”
Atwoli however stated that this is his last term as COTU Secretary General and he will not be vying for the seat again.
