Saturday, February 5, 2022 – Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General, Francis Atwoli, has revealed why Deputy President William Ruto has been attracting bigger crowds than former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

 For the last few months, Ruto, who is vying for president in August, has been attracting huge swathes of people in his rallies and this seems to have worried Atwoli who is an ardent supporter of Raila Odinga.

Atwoli, who spoke to one of the local dailies, said Ruto and his associates have been ferrying people to their rallies, which explains the big crowds.

Atwoli gave examples of Machakos and Western Kenya rallies where DP Ruto attracted huge crowds during last year’s by-elections but that didn’t translate into votes.

“What the top leadership of the hustler nation has been doing is ferrying people to create the perception of popularity, but when it came to the ballot, they had no impact. 

“The reality has dawned and everyone has realized he has no support. 

“He has been in western and you have seen huge crowds attending his rallies, but when it comes to voting they are nowhere,” Atwoli stated.
