The Central Organization of Trade Union's (COTU) secretary general Francis Atwoli yesterday took a jibe at all Kenya young people after he received backlash over his last month's re-elections for five terms in a row.
Sharing his Labour Day celebrations insights on how the trade union had grown since he took power in 2001, Atwoli told off those stating that he has failed to groom the youth for the post, as he slammed them claiming that they are only determined to get quick riches and are eyeing political ambitions that don't rhyme with the post.
He went on to tell off his critics who alleged that he has been in agreement with the government to win the post noting that his devotion to the Kenyan worker has earned him re-election since 2001.
"People say Atwoli has overstayed in the labour movement; indeed, I have. But you see since I was first elected in 2001, I have never had an opponent, even in the just concluded election in April. I have sold myself to my colleagues that I can work hard for them. I can do everything for them and when I want to leave they ask themselves ‘who will work for us like Atwoli?’ he said.
