COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has broken his silence moments after the Supreme Court of Kenya upheld President elect William Ruto’s Win.
The Chief Justice Martha Koome-led court on Monday afternoon ruled that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had conducted a free, fair and verifiable election.
Atwoli has been heard confidently saying that Ruto will not become the president of the republic of Kenya.
The COTU boss has maintained his remarks during the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition campaigns, and before that, he had even been heard saying that Ruto will not be on the ballot.
However, after the Supreme Court verdict, Atwoli took to his official social media handles and congratulated President elect Ruto.
Atwoli noted that COTU had unanimously agreed during their executive board meeting that they would thank and Congratulate the victor.
He went ahead to appeal to the workers and Kenyans at large to remain peaceful after the Supreme Court verdict.
“During COTU (K) Executive Board meeting on 17th August, we resolved THAT immediately after the Supreme Court judgement, we must thank and congratulate the victor. Consequently, we congratulate President William Ruto. We appeal to workers and Kenyans in general to remain peaceful,” Atwoli tweeted.
