Here is why I told UHURU to drop RUTO from his leadership – COTU boss FRANCIS ATWOLI reveals in a new book

Friday May 3, 2019-Central Organisation of Trade Union (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has revealed that he told President Uhuru Kenyatta to sack his deputy William Ruto in 2014 to save the country and his legacy.

 In new book Fame, Force and Fury, Atwoli says he believes that Uhuru should not have picked Ruto as his running mate in 2017.

“Once someone helps you to get a wife, you do not continue keeping him around lest he snatches that wife from you,” he says in the Sh1,000 a piece book.

Atwoli also discloses that he did not endorse Uhuru’s 2002 and 2013 presidential candidacy since the son of the nation's founding father Jomo Kenyatta was 'green'.

“In 2002, when Moi endorsed Uhuru for the presidency, Atwoli had rejected him, saying he was a greenhorn. He maintained that the country needed experienced leaders and more so, those who understood the plight of Kenyans,” according to the book's authors Babere Chacha and Judith Akuma.
