The COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli on Saturday revealed why he had to eat his words and pay a visit to president William Ruto on Thursday.

Speaking during a funeral In Khwisero, Atwoli said he decided to work with the Kenya kwanza administration to create a link between the international labour organisation to promote the interests of workers.

He said the interests of kenyan workers are covered under ILO convention 190 and cannot be passed by the government without the knowledge of the president.

Interests of workers in Kenya which are covered under the International Labour Organisation (ILO) convention 190 cannot be passed by the government of Kenya without the knowledge of the President and that is why I have to work with the Head of State,” said Atwoli.

He said that before he visited the president, he consulted with prime Cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi and other western region leaders.

Further, Atwoli who supported Raila Odinga's bid for presidency before elections changed tune and declared Musalia Mudavadi as the western kingpin.

Prior to the election Atwoli had declared Mudavadi as a week leader having led a group of leaders in declaring former kakamega governor Wycliffe oparanya as the western kingpin.

Prior to oparanya, Atwoli had declared Mudavadi as the kingpin in 2016.
