Every 1st May goes in History as the day Kenyans, especially workers turn up in large numbers to celebrate the International Labour Day. However, this year’s celebrations goes in history as the day Kenyans almost boycotted the historical event!
Only a handful of Kenyans rose up on Wednesday to celebrate Labour day marked every May 1.
Some of the attendees were seen seated while others stood as they carried umbrellas to protect them from the scorching sunlight.
The event which begun at 9:30am, was graced by Labour CS Ukur Yattani, COTU Secretary general Francis Atwoli and COTU officials.
NASA leaders Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula were also seen at the park even as as a section of workers marched past the dais during the celebrations. This made the Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria to walk out of the event, terming it as a NASA rally!
But Miguna Miguna has a well version of describing the turn up! The exiled controversial lawyer says Less than 150 Kenyans attended this year’s Historical event.
According to him, the images captured from the event represent curious Kenyans sizing up Atwoli’s distended belly.
