Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General, Francis Atwoli, has told Kenyans that their votes will not count next year because it is the ‘deep state’ that will decide who will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Speaking during an interview with TV47, Atwoli said that the so called ‘deep state’ already knows who will be the next president even before a single vote is cast.
“They have calculations, they know even before us the voters know who will become the president and after that, they will seek an early appointment have a meeting with the person after that they put their gears or they put whatever they want into gears and start moving now. And you will not be able to defeat such a person,” he said.
Atwoli further stated that campaigns are all about money and that only the very well funded will emerge victorious.
“Because you see Kenya’s politics is commercialized, if you are not funded you can not make any mark and in a presidential election is not only one political financier you must have financiers and goodwill support from the influencers,” he explained.
