Francis Atwoli, the outspoken trade unionist has been making headlines in recent times for all the wrong reasons.
Instead of protecting the welfare of workers, Atwoli has decided to expose his family life to the public life after marrying Mary Kilobi, the KTN Swahili news anchor, who was reportedly married to a Bungoma politician before being snubbed.
And now it seems it is not all rosy in Atwoli’s family, as news have emerged that the old man has kicked his second wife Roselinda Atwoli out of their Kileleshwa home.
Roselinda filed a complaint with police on Wednesday after she was reportedly kicked out together with her 13 year old son from their apartment in Kileleshwa.
The latest move has elicited different reactions from Kenyans on Twitter some of who viewed Atwoli as a champion of the voiceless.
Check out some of the comments below.
“However, Atwoli was at odds with her in 2016 when she allowed her eldest daughter to take aviation studies in South Africa. The differences resulted in Atwoli writing a letter to the school to discontinue the girl’s studies. ”
