Atwoli amshauri Ruto kumwomba msamaha Mzee Moi ili kumrithi Uhuru

Katibu mkuu wa Cotu Francis Atwoli amesema kwamba itakuwa vigumu sana kwa Naibu wa Rais William Ruto kumrithi Rais Uhuru Kenyatta hadi atakapozingatia maadili ya unyenyekevu.

Atwoli ambaye alizuru ngome ya Ruto mjini Eldoret alisema kwamba Ruto anakumbwa na vizingiti vingi na alimshauri kumwomba msamaha Rais mstaafu Daniel Moi.

Alimshauri Ruto kupitia Seneta wa Baringo Gideon Moi akutane na Mzee Moi ili apewe baraka za mzee anapotazamia madaraka ya juu.

“Iwapo hatafanya hivyo basi itakuwa vigumu kwake kuchukua uongozi 2022,” Atwoli alisema.

Alizungumza hayo katika halfa ya kuchangisha pesa katika kanisa la Evangelical Bible mjini Eldoret ambapo aliambatana na wabunge Joshua Kutuny wa Cherangany, Sila Tiren wa Moiben na Wilson Sossion ambaye ni mbunge mteule.

“Ninamshauri Ruto hasipuuze wito huu iwapo anataka kiti cha urais,” alisema.

Miezi mitatu iliyopita, katibu  huyo wa Cotu alizua tafaruku aliposisitiza kwamba jina la Ruto halitakuwa miongoni mwa watakaogombea kiti cha urais 2022.

Akita Eldoret, Atwoli alisema kwamba iwapo Ruto hatapatana na Moi, hasahau azma ya kurithi rais Uhuru.

Hata hivyo juhudi za naibu wa rais William Ruto za kufika Kabarak nyumbani kwake Moi kumeambulia patupu.

Baada ya kusemekana kuwa Seneta wa Baringo Gideon Moi kumzuia Ruto kukutana na mzee.

‘One thing I cannot do is to have an affair with somebody’s wife,’ – Francis Atwoli

COTU boss Francis Atwoli on Monday refuted claims that he snatched another man’s wife.

“Somebody has been trying to tarnish my name on social media by claiming that I took his wife. That is madness.”

This was in response to a blog which claimed that the COTU leader was involved in an affair with a married TV anchor.

“One thing I cannot do in my life is to have an affair with somebody’s wife. My late father warned me never to fool around with someone’s wife,” he said.

Atwoli said he married his wives after “serious investigations” on their character. The COTU secretary spoke during the official opening of an ILO workshop in Kisumu.

“Of my several wives, I asked their parents if they were single before I married them,” he said.

The outspoken secretary general said he married his youngest wife legally after getting consent from her parents.

Atwoli said Francis Wangara, a long-serving workmate, “helped in arrangements to get the girl”.

He said he has several daughters and is willing to give their hand in marriage to suitable suitors.

“I’m willing to give any man, irrespective of age, as long as they are in love. Let them pay dowry, and we bless them to start their lives,” Atwoli said.
