Sunday May 24, 2020 – COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has thanked the Senate for kicking out its Deputy Speaker, Kithure Kindiki, over claims of disrespecting the party leadership.

Speaking at his Kajiado home yesterday, Atwoli particularly thanked Senators from Western Kenya for joining hands with colleagues to ensure that they voted in unison.

At the same time, he urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to go for National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, next, accusing him of sabotaging the Government.

“The same changes must be now be extended to National Assembly because it will be of no value to vote out Prof Kindiki and leave another in Parliament who is holding a key position in Government when it comes to legislation,” Atwoli said.

“That person is Majority Leader, Aden Duale.”

“I will use all my available resources to campaign for his removal.”

“His position must equally be dealt with,” the trade unionist said.

Atwoli had claimed that 10 years ago, he predicted that Duale was likely to be an impediment to the country’s economic and overall development owing to the position he holds.

“Duale has brought to Parliament bills and a lot of amendments on laws concerning workers of this country with ulterior motives by even trying to outlaw strikes,” Atwoli said.  

Earlier, Atwoli had claimed that all those people associated with DP Ruto led by Duale should be stopped from ascending to power because they are “dangerous”.
