The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) secretary general Francis Atwoli has weighed in on the prospect of an alliance between the Deputy President Dr William Ruto and the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga. Speaking on the Jeff Koinange Live Show on Wednesday night, the renowned trade unionist told the host that he could not rule out anything. Atwoli held the view that alliances in politics are prompted by situations and he could not say for sure that a situation that would require the two leaders to work together would not pop up.

"What I can tell you for sure is that I really don't, you know in politics anything can happen and political alliances are prompted by situations. I can't say that they will work or they will not work. One day in politics is like a thousand days, " the COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli told the JKL show host on Wednesday night.
