Like it has been for the last two decades, Francis Atwoli has been elected as the Secretary General of COTU. The elections were held at the Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu on Friday.
In a tweet, the 71 year old thanked country’s trade unionists for electing him unopposed for the position he has held since 2001 and promised to work for them with all his might.
”I want to thank all Kenyan workers for re-electing me unopposed, through their registered Trade Union Representatives, as the Secretary-General of @COTU_K. I promise to service you with all my might and strength and not betray the trust you have bestowed in me.”
The COTU boss has earned nickname ‘Mugabe of COTU” for staying in the position for over 20 years now and calls on his retirement continue from a section of Kenyans.
