Electing Ruto Will be The End of Me – Atwoli Tells Luhyas

COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has urged the Luhya nation not to vote for Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate Wiliam Ruto, on August 9.

He was speaking on Wednesday in Kakamega.

Atwoli said since 2014, he has been reiterating that Ruto should never lead Kenya.

“The reason for this is, as a DP he is already a top government official. Yet he abused his office, and called an officer below him to have him award government tenders to specific persons,” he claimed.

“Raila’s win will save my life because if Ruto wins, I will not have peace.”

Atwoli further said it is wrong for the UDA leader to blame the high cost of fuel and by extension, of living on the 2018 handshake.

He added that it is he who oversaw the appointment of the former Energy CS Charles Keter. He also hit out at ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi for the recent remarks against ODM leader Raila Odinga.

“He has been saying people should not vote for Raila, inciting Luhyas against him. Without Raila, Musalia would not be known,” Atwoli said.

On Sunday while speaking in Kilifi, Ruto said Raila as an adviser to President Uhuru Kenyatta, must be faulted for the sharp rise in the prices of commodities like maize flour and cooking oil.

“It is his advice that has made the price of flour rise. Is this a person you can hire even to herd your goats? What if he gets the top job, will the price of flour get to Sh500?” he asked.

He was reiterating his earlier remarks that Uhuru and Raila were sabotaging the country’s economy.

“We have a big crisis in our country now and it is because the Big four plan was sabotaged by handshake shenanigans.”
