Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli has left many shocked after throwing away his phone during an interview,
Atwoli who is known for his dramatic expressions, surprised Jeff Koinange during the JKL live show with the act.
The flashy leader reached into his pocket and took out his phone, an Iphone 11 Pro Max, which was ringing.
When questioned by Jeff if he was switching it off, Atwoli responded by tossing it on the other side of the studio, to the disbelief of the show host.
The vibrant leader of the workers association, proceeded with the interview laughing as if nothing had happened.
Netizens were quick to bash the Cotu boss who treated the phone as a toy with the unimaginable behaviour.

Last week during a fundraising ceremony in Kakamega, the trade union boss publicly uttered that he hoped God would forgive him for marrying a second wife.
Atwoli claimed that he chose to find a second wife in a bid to get support and not last as rumoured.
He insisted that he was a devoted Christian and followed God’s word.
“I am hoping, am just hope God will forgive me. Have you heard these words? Young men do not rush to marry. Follow my footsteps.” explained the union boss.
