Atwoli Reveals Why He Has Been Politically Missing In Action

Unlike the previous years where COTU Secretary general Francis Atwoli was seen to be at the centre of Uhuru's succession plan, an year to the electioneering year the vibrant unionist is no where to be seen.

The long-term COTU Secretary general has not been seen in the corridors of politics despite the on going political arrangements where he is believed to be one of the country's top political power brokers. It's his absence that trigged a columnist in one of the Daily Newspapers to question why Atwoli had gone mum wondering whether he was waiting for the BBI ruling set for tomorrow to bounce back politically.

"...maybe the judgement, however it goes, will trigger his return back to the public eye" Hoped the columnist.

The concerns could hardly pass the hawk-eyed Atwoli who was quick to give reason why he had gone slow on his political activities. He says that since the president had taken charge of his succession plan he couldn't act his deputy to contradict him.

"Everything has been taken over by the President. The President is currently working towards National Unity and I cannot come out, like his deputy, to contradict him. When the President is working towards a common good, like peace and unity, we must all support him." Reads Atwoli's tweet.

However, being one of the BBI protagonist, it is expected that regardless of the decision made by the court of Appeal, Atwoli won't miss a word and perhaps bring him back to the limelight.
