COTU boss Mr Francis Atwoli is a bitter man whom of late has been spitting venom. From branding the Kikuyu community ‘washezi’ and it is now Laikipia woman rep Cate Waruguru’s turn.
It all started last Sunday when COTU boss Mr Francis Atwoli during a Cotu prayer rally on at St Stephen’s ACK Church in Nairobi, intimated that President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is from central Kenya, is being intimidated following the “handshake” with opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Mr Atwoli said that “the Kikuyus of yesteryears could not be intimidated to allow for two centers of power”.
“We can’t have two centers of powers in the same government. Na nyinyi Wakikuyu wa kisasa, nyinyi ni washenzi sana. Aliyesema Mwai Kibaki tosha alikuwa Raila. Wakaandikana MoU. Raila aliitwa kule Sagana kama Cabinet imekiwhisha akaambiwatake this or leave it.
“So tell President Uhuru Kenyatta he should not be intimidated. (You Kikuyus of nowadays are uncivilized. Even Raila Odinga who declared his support for former President Mwai Kibaki was only invited to Sagana State Lodge after the Cabinet was formed and told to either take the positions offered to him or to leave. So, tell President Uhuru Kenyatta that he should not be intimidated),” Mr Atwoli said on Sunday.
His remarks raised mayhem with a section of Kikuyu leaders demanding for an apology.But the feisty Laikipia woman rep took the issue further with a scathing remark on Atwoli.
Cate Waruguru in a video that went viral on social media blasted Francis Atwoli as a man who deserves no space in the 21st Century.
“In his right senses Atwoli said Kikuyus ni washenzi. It is well known if you see a dog walking around with a chain, barking then know it has rabies and it needs medical attention” she said.
Waruguru said she did not expect such statement from a leader who is like her grandpapa.
Atwoli has since angrily responded to Laikipia Women Representative who described him as “a dog with rabies” who needs mental check-up at Mathari Mental Hospital.
Atwoli has urged Cate Waruguru to stop being loose to married men like Kipchumba Murkomen and Professor Peter Mbithi of the University of Nairobi
“I know who sleeps with who and in which Hotels in this country. The same woman hurling insults at me is the same woman I can confidently reveal to the public how she is a threat to stable marriages. The other day she was with Professor Mbithi in a high end Hotel double dealing him with Senator Murkomen. Don’t taste my patience female. Just allow me to ignore you!” Angry Atwoli quipped.
