KNUN Claims Atwoli Rigged COTU Elections

In the said elections, it was reported that Atwoli was re-elected to his position unopposed, giving him the fifth consecutive term at the helm of the worker's union.

These claims by KNUN come after Atwoli wrote a letter dated 12th April 2021 to the nurse's union expelling them from COTU for allegedly breaching the COTU constitution, by not contributing towards the affairs of COTU.

Atwoli stated that this decision was reached at the 14th COTU Quinquennial Hybrid Delegates' Conference which was held at the Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu.

In KNUN's response, they claim that this decision was reached after the General Secretary of KNUN, Seth Panyako, vied to take over the position of Atwoli in COTU, in the 9th April 2021.

They claim that this is punishment being given to KNUN which is trying to open up democracy in COTU.
