In just two weeks after the Head of State, Dr. William Ruto revoked the plans of subdividing the 245,029 acres of Galana Kulalu irrigation scheme, COTU boss Francis Atwoli has now made a new demand over the land.
Speaking at Khiswero constituency in Kakamega county, Atwoli urged the President to make public all the names of Azimio leaders who grabbed the Gala Kulalu land project.
He argued that it is good for the public to know those who stole and benefited from public resources in the name of supporting Azimio leader, Rails Odinga and the immediate former President, Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I have heard Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua saying that some people in the former government and Azimio grabbed some land meant for the Galana Kulalu project to end drought and food shortage while some ran away with government and public money. The names should be put public for public knowledge even if they will not be taken to court,” said Atwoli.
“It is good for the public to know the people who were involved if found because our leaders need to uphold and show integrity towards the electorate.” He added.
