Francis Atwoli, secretary general of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU), is now requesting that Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang'i order the arrest of Deputy President William Ruto, for his persistent attacks on government and state officers.
In the recent past, a portion of Kenya Kwanza leaders have criticized the purported large deployment of police officers to areas of the Rift Valley region, stating that the action will only help to disrupt the region's tranquility.
During a campaign event for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya in Kisii, Atwoli stated that the government will soon be obliged to take action against DP Ruto and his crew for their increasingly outrageous statements.
He criticized the DP, stating that his words intimidated police personnel and that his objections regarding the deployment of service members to Rift Valley were inappropriate.
At the same time, Atwoli stated that police welfare would be addressed if Raila Odinga wins the August elections as the Azimio presidential candidate.
"Asilete mambo ya kuingilia polisi; alisimama kusema police watolewe (Rift Valley)…polisi ni wafanyikazi, asicheze na polisi," Atwoli stated.
"Matiang'i ni kijana mdogo sana na anaweza kuwa a very good boxer na huwezi kumpiga,kama William anaendelea hivyo sisi tutaweka yeye ndani," Atwoli said.
