Wednesday, December 7, 2022 – COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has revealed how he struggled to respond to Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s question when the two met in Egypt. 

Speaking in Kakamega, the trade unionist disclosed that he met Suluhu after the Conference of Parties (COP27) meeting in Egypt, where she inquired about the progress of Kenya’s government.

Suluhu sought to know how Ruto settled into power and how he handled the transition process.

The COTU boss was conflicted about whether to inform Tanzania’s President that he had supported Azimio la Umoja candidate Raila Odinga or explain Ruto’s performance.

However, Atwoli stated that he composed himself and gave Ruto’s administration a positive review, impressing Suluhu. 

“In the last meeting, I met President Suluhu Hassan, and she asked me just one question. How is the leadership and administration of President William Samoei Ruto?” Atwoli posed.

“I was forced to give her the life history of President Ruto because he is now my president. I wondered if I should have started by explaining that I supported the opposition,” Atwoli added.

Following the encounter, Atwoli appealed to Azimio principals, led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, to keep the government in check but in an organized way.

  1. Hello Daily Post. The development star is not shining on our side because we parents and stakeholders of Sengani Girls High School in Matungulu, Machakos County we call upon the office of Director Public Prosecutions, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Education ministry and the Teachers Service Commission to investigate the school’s principal for mismanagement.
    She is out to loot and in the recent past she has been colluding with suppliers to steal funds.We are tired kabisaaaa since she is very rude.
    The principal is running down the school and as parents we are not happy about what has been happening.
    She is now running the school as his personal property as well as going contrary to the ministry of Education’s rules as well as flouting procurement rules.
    All is not well here and audit should be done.She has been colluding with Matungulu MP to pocket bursary funds.
    Recently Auditor general exposed how the school misused funds for a building in the school. She colluded with the contractor and MP to the steal funds
    The bursary ‘wash wash’ business is done here and the government should come to our rescue.Thank you Daily Post for exposing the rot in Kenya
