Atwoli Still Insists Ruto Will Never Win In 2022, Gives Fresh 'Evidence' To Prove

The Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli was appearing on an interview with Citizen TV's Jeff Koinange. In the interview, Atwoli gave his views about the current political atmosphere and his preferred candidate.

The union leader insisted again that the Deputy President William Ruto will never be elected as president of this country, at least not in 2022. He added that the ODM leader Raila Odinga will take over statehouse after Uhuru. He said this with certainty and affirmation even asking the host to mark the day he has made that prophecy because it will eventually come to pass.

"Raila is a perfect organizer, to stop him you must put some powerful mechanism in place. This is to say that if elections are held today, Raila will merge a victor," he said.

In his renewed attack against the DP, Atwoli revealed that Ruto does not only lack the numbers, but he is also a terrible campaigner compared to Raila. The Secretary General who has been at the helm since 2001 added that he understands the politics of this country and history itself is against Ruto because no vice president has ever succeeded the outgoing head of state immediately.

"William Ruto is not going to win the elections because if you were to win elections if you want to be a president and you are working with somebody who is ahead of you, you support this person till the end. You don't start preparing a marina for him in order for you to win," he added.

Furthermore, Atwoli predicted that there will be no need for a re-run because Raila will win massively in the first round. About the populous Mt Kenya region, Atwoli declared that they will vote for someone who has their interests at heart and that the person is not William Ruto.
