Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli has dismissed claims of him being admitted at a City Hospital over coronavirus.
The vocal Trade unionist through his official twitter account has termed the reports as fake news.
“Let’s avoid sharing fake news. Considering I am a person of interest if I were to get hospitalized I’ll make it public. It’s God, the one God I pray to, who takes care of me,” Atwoli tweeted.
COTU also reiterated Atwoli’s stance while giving an update on the Secretary-General’s health.
“FAKE NEWS ALERT Avoid the fake news making rounds that our Secretary General Bro Francis Atwoli, @AtwoliDza, has been hospitalized. The SG is in good health and has been busy attending meetings and online engagement aimed at cushioning workers from the economic shock of COVID,” reads the tweet.
This follows reports on social media and various local news outlets that Atwoli had been admitted at a City Hospital after contracting the deadly virus.
