Friday August 2, 2019 - Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has revealed how President Uhuru Kenyatta’s aides lie to him about issues affecting the country.

Addressing journalists in Nairobi on Friday, Atwoli also revealed that Uhuru’s aides led by his chief aide, Kinuthia Mbugua, are rude to anyone who wants to have a conversation with the Head of State.

Atwoli said unlike Francis Muthaura and other aides of former President Mwai Kibaki, Uhuru’s aides are rude.

He accused them of colluding with cartels to lie to the President over the Portland Cement land saga.

“They don’t receive my calls. If [Interior CS Fred] Matiang'i does not receive my call, how can he receive a call from a common mwananchi?" Atwoli asked.

The Cotu chief criticised Uhuru’s administration and urged him not to take the advice of his aides on anything concerning the land.

Atwoli said he is a trustee of NSSF which has 28 per cent of shares in the 4,700 acres of Portland Cement land.

“I and millions of other Kenyans are part of the land. We have shares there and we cannot allow cartels to lie to the President and steal land from Kenyans. No one has said that Portland has free land to give to the state,” he said.

He warned President Kenyatta to be keen if he wanted to achieve his agenda.
