Monday, June 1, 2020 – Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has reacted to reports linking him to yesterday’s coup in Ford Kenya where the party’s National Governing Council (NGC) removed Moses Wetangula as the party leader.
In a statement to media houses on Sunday, Atwoli warned against being linked to the party’s latest drama where Wetangula was replaced by little known Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyinyi.
“I want to state categorically that I have nothing to do with what is happening in Ford-K and Amani National Congress.”
“My party is KANU and I shouldn’t be dragged into local parties belonging to fence-sitters who have no idea of what is happening in Kenya,” Atwoli wrote.
Addressing journalists on Sunday, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, accused Atwoli of working with a member of the National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition to dominate political parties.
“I am aware that this mischief has been in the making for some time now.”
“It is calculated to invade and destabilise all independent-minded political parties.”
“The mischief has been escalated at a number of meetings led by the leader of a NASA member-party, whose objective is to dominate and destroy everyone politically.”
“In this, they are aided by the Secretary-General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU),” Mudavadi stated.
