Bahati member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has engaged in a war of words with the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) secretary general Francis Atwoli over the controversies surrounding deputy president William Ruto's security. According to Atwoli, Kimani Ngunjiri has been quoting his name in a video that has since went viral saying he had a hand in the withdrawal of DP Ruto's security apparatus.
"You could have seen a video that has been circulating on social media in which the Bahati constituency member of Parliament has been quoting me to have involved in the downgrade of our deputy president's security. I want to make it clear that it is malice and wrong. I have told the government that it has erred in doing that," Atwoli said in a video that was shared by Nation Media group.
Accordingly, SG Atwoli has told Kimani Ngunjiri to keep his name of the issue of changing security at DP Ruto's official residences saying he has no involvement whatsoever. "Keep me out of it, I'm not involved," Atwoli said.
The COTU secretary general has went public and criticised the government saying the security of the deputy president is a matter of importance and should not be take for granted.
