Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua, has blasted Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General, Francis Atwoli, over his remarks that Deputy President William Ruto will not become president in 2022.
In an interview with Citizen TV on Thursday morning, Gachagua said that Atwoli is entitled to his opinion and does not speak for millions of Kenyans.
“The decision on who is to become the president of Kenya will be made by the people of Kenya. Atwoli may have his personal opinion, which he is entitled to, but not speak for Kenyans. Whom does he speak for? Is he God?” Posed Rigathi.
Gachagua further blasted Atwoli saying he is unfit to speak first about matters of politics without first addressing the issues faced by workers whom he is supposed to serve under his mandate.
“I have never heard the workers of Kenya give him the mandate to speak on political matters. The workers of Kenya have serious challenges which he does not articulate,” he added.
