COTU boss Francis Atwoli claims Deputy President’s recent two-day trip to Uganda, where he was hosted by the country’s president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, had everything to do with the politics of 2022.
On 8th July, William Ruto spent his day at the Ugandan leader’s Mbarara district home after presiding over the opening of laying of the foundation stone for a Biological Drugs and mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility at Matuga-Wakiso District at the invitation of President Museveni.
However, speaking in Tana River when he accompanied ODM boss Raila Odinga on a tour of the region, Atwoli alleged the deputy president plans to reject the outcome of the 2022 presidential election and later cause chaos in the country.
”Ruto atashindwa an hatakubali ameshindwa. Yeye ndio ataleta fujo. Saa hizi anafanya urafiki an nchi jirani ili apitishe mabunduki,” the COTU Boss said on Monday in Hola.
When he rose to speak, ODM leader Raila Odinga drummed up support for the BBI, saying it was a good document for Kenyans seeking to allocate more resources to the counties.
“It is ironic that the one who opposed the 2010 Constitution has turned round to say it is good for Kenyans. The BBI seeks to raise the allocation to counties from 15 percent to 35 percent. The current allocation mainly caters to salaries while there is no much development. Is this bad for you?” Raila posed.
The ODM leader argued that BBI borrowed from the first national delegates conference at Bomas of Kenya that proposed the position of prime minister and his two deputies who should be MPs saying that this did not increase the burden to taxpayers as claimed by critics of the initiative.
