Setback for Azimio As COTU Releases The Following Statement To All Workers

The opposition leader Raila Odinga's call for widespread protests against the high expense of living has alarmed the Central Organization of Trade Unions (Cotu).

Cotu warned its members against taking part in the planned demonstration in a statement issued on Saturday, pointing out that Monday, March 20, 2023, has not been formally designated a public holiday.

Constitutionally, it is only the ministry of interior granted permission to declare a public holiday.

In reacting to Raila's moves, COTU has released a statement warning all workers that the set holiday is not gazetted.

The statement also read that, "As the Umbrella body of workers, we wish to remind workers to secure their jobs by reporting to their workstations." As quoted.

The statement also cautioned the two parties that, "We appeal to both parties to engage in active dialogue and find a long lasting solution that will promote economic development in the country." As indicated.
