COTU secretary general Hounerable Francis Atwoli has been on record drumming support for Orange democratic party leader Raila Odinga presidency. In several Political meetings, he was seen declaring that come next year, it is Odinga who will succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta and nothing else will stop that prediction.

Well, things are not the same anymore. According to the interview made by the standard newspaper, Atwoli seems to have changed his tune on endorsing Odinga. He has now claimed that, him being the region spokesperson. They agreed in a meeting that they will engage leading leaders in the presidential election and that as per today, they have not settled on anyone.
