COTU SG Atwoli Slams Uhuru Kenyatta Government in a Conference held in Egypt

Central Union of Trade Organization Secretary-General Francis Atwoli has closed on his one week conference held in Egypt. He has slammed on Uhuru Kenyatta government for frustrating its citizens through over-taxation.

"Kenyans have been forced to pay up to Ksh135 for a litre of petrol at a time when its neighbors far much less." He reported.

His report proceeds on to ask the delegates at the meeting whether such a government should maintain their silence in peace while the people who voted for them continue to suffer the pain.

He has dared the President come out and make a statement on the issue of high fuel prices which has become a burden to an already suffering citizen.

He adds that the Kenyan government is taking advantage of the pandemic to increase the cost of doing businesses.

He implored African employers in the continent to try and liaise with their respective governments, and appeal to them to fund the losses that they have encountered as a result of the pandemic.
