COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has fired another salvo to those opposing BBI. He said that he knew of plans by some leaders planning to scuttle the process. Atwoli was speaking during his victory speech after winning another term at the helm of the union.
When Atwoli became Secretary General of COTU, the late President Moi was preparing to hand over instruments of power after 24 years of leadership. Atwoli has now seen three presidents in power and with current election, he is guaranteed to see the fifth president of Kenya while he's the boss of COTU.
In his usual thunderous voice, Atwoli said that BBI is the only initiative that can unite Kenyans. In what he has repeatedly said often, Atwoli reiterated that the union is firmly behind BBI process anc they will not let anyone scuttle it. Atwoli also said his body fully supports the handshake initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
Although a KANU life member, Francis Atwoli is a great admirer of ODM leader Raila Odinga. He frequently hosts him in his Isinya home as preparations for 2022 elections take shape. With his own elections out of the way, Atwoli can now focus his energy on campaigning for BBI.
