Francis Atwoli Under Siege After his Wife Joins Deputy President's UDA Party.

The Deputy President, Willam Ruto, on Friday, January 28, has ushered the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) boss Francis Atwoli's wife as a member of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

While addressing a crowd in Bungoma town, Ruto introduced Rosalinda Simiyu and she indeed confirmed to be the wife of Mr. Atwoli.

However, the DP also seized the moment to take a swipe at his perennial rival, one whom they have traded barbs in public for years. It should be remembered that Atwoli has been at the forefront in opposing Ruto's presidential bid.

"Huyu ni bibi ya ule jamaa wa nyororo(She is the wife of that guy who loves wearing chains)," Ruto trolled Atwoli who is famous for adorning jewelry and living a lavish lifestyle.

Rosalinda acknowledged that she is indeed Atwoli's wife and revealed that she is supporting Ruto's presidential bid.

Rosalinda's announcement to join Ruto's political camp caught many people's surprise knowing the kind of relationship between the two leaders.

Me Atwoli has on several occasions stated that the UDA leader will not be Kenya's 5th president and vowed to campaign against him.

On August 8, 2021, Atwoli warned Kenyans against supporting the deputy president's presidential bid but asked them to support Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga’s bid to unite the nation ahead of next year’s elections.
