Atwoli Reveals What He Told Raila Just Before Meeting Ruto In State House

Francis Atwoli, the leader of the COTU, has defended his decision to travel to the White House and meet with President William Ruto with representatives from the Kenya Kwanza Alliance's Western Region.

Atwoli said that he made the decision two days after the visit because he wanted to protect the workers he is in charge of. He also said that he didn't want to go at night or in a way that would suggest he was hiding.

Atwoli, who opposed Ruto's presidential campaign in favor of Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, claimed that he had informed Odinga beforehand.

"I explained to my in-law and who is Raila Odinga, and told him that I have a constituency that I represent. I did not go campaigning to be a governor or a MP. I was campaigning to have worker-related issues implemented, and we did not get the top seat. As an international labour leader, I had to go to those who got the seat so that I can push for the interests of workers," Atwoli said.
