COTU general secretary Francis Atwoli has come out to give indications that he is more powerful in politics than the Deputy President William Ruto.

Speaking on NTV’s SideBar talk on Tuesday evening, Atwoli said that after Uhuru’s tenure, Raila Odinga will take over the mantle before handing it over to Atwoli himself and nobody else in the future. He observed that no other person will rise above him after Raila Odinga and any who will emerge will just be a donkey.

“After Uhuru Kenyatta, it is Raila Odinga and then Francis Atwoli, nobody else. If you see any other person, they are Donkeys. You can carry your own Research.” said Atwoli

Atwoli also reiterated the need to change the constitution saying that this will help solve the problem of ‘Winner takes it all’ He stressed that those opposed to the move will be shocked since referendum must happen in Kenya by all means before the next elections.

He went ahead to term Ruto as a shrewd, smart and brave politician but panicked that he lacks good and wise advisers. “He needs to be guided like yesterday.”

Atwoli went ahead to declare his wealth and family status amid speculations that he had mistreated his first wife after chasing her out of their Kitengela home “I have 2 bank accounts, I have 2 wives, I have 17 children, I have a Mercedes Benz and a Prado.” he said


Atwoli has been on records attacking Deputy President William Ruto. He has also criticized a section of leaders allied to the deputy president who, he says, are only attracted to him for financial handouts. He says no politician would be able to amass the Luhyia vote without working with leaders like Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula and Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa.
