Atwoli Finally Speaks After Ruto Was Declared President Elect, Sends Message to Kenyans

Francis Atwoli, the secretary general of COTU, asked Kenyans on Friday to respect the peace even as the Supreme Court is considering a case challenging the validity of the presidential election results.

He acknowledged that throughout the election season, Kenyans have been at peace.

Nowhere else in the world has an election been held as peacefully as Kenya. And I want to maintain that tranquility.I therefore implore Kenyans to follow the law, just as we implored Raila Odinga and he agreed. Waiting for the court's ruling," he said.

He commended the government and election participants for making sure elections went well.

"The secret is tolerance. Raila Odinga is akubali ya kwamba ni lazima tufuate njia ya kotini.Kwa hivo nawasihi wakenya wawe na amani," he added.

He also urged Kenyans to follow the two contesting leaders' pledge to respect the Supreme Court's ruling.

Atwoli also pleaded with individuals provoking Kenyans on social media to stop.

"I implore those who are instigating others or threatening others on social media to stop and leave it to the court," the COTU Secretary General said.
