The Central Organization for Trade Union (COTU) boss Francis Atwoli has revealed his plans to visit the United Kingdom to warn Kenyans against William Ruto’s presidency.
While speaking in an interview with the press on Monday, March 7, the flamboyant unionist stated that his main agenda for his tour abroad will be to explain to the Kenyans living in the diaspora that DP Ruto is a corrupt individual.
“Am going to London, next week on Wednesday I will be there, from there I will be going to the US then head to Israel, wherever he has gone I will be there,” Atwoli said.
He further stated that he will warn Kenyans from electing Ruto as the president stating that he does not deserve the top seat.
“I will be telling Kenyans, the first Kenya deputy president after independence, in 1963 who is an open thief, fearless thief, was here last week and what he was telling you was all lies,” Atwoli added.
His sentiments followed hours after Dp Ruto termed him a very stupid and foolish man after he opposed the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) bill in 2020.
“How do you explain that a trade unionist would defend a system where the Deputy President earning Sh1 million pays Sh1,700 to NHIF while a peasant making Sh5,000 a month pays Sh500 which is 10 percent of their income?” Ruto posed.
“The people at the bottom are carrying a heavy load than those at the top and somebody wants to tell us it is fair. This isn’t fair. We cannot continue to tolerate the likes of Atwoli” said Ruto.
