COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli was honored by the Nairobi County Government in may and the road along Kileleshwa, previously known an Dik Dik road named after him. This attracted uproar from Kenyans and it was vandalised shortly after it was put up.
Atwoli condemned the move and the and the administration went ahead to see to it that the signpost was reinstalled.
However, two weeks later the signpost has been vandalised yet again and this time it was set in fire by unknown goons.
The vandalism has not gone well with Francis Atwoli and this time be has reacted via his official tweeter account saying that those responsible will be haunted for life.
"Bringing down an honorary road signage under my name doesnt hurt me. On the flip side it will haunt for life those who are behind it. For how does it benefit them? How do you sleep at night knowing that you are a vandal?
My name is all over the world and one does not need a street signage for them to know who Francis Atwoli is. The name will live in posterity taking into account my years of selfless service for the workers of Kenya and the world,"read part of Francis Atwoli's statement.
