Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli has for the first time revealed why he has never and might never run for an elective post in the country despite his penchant of controversy.
In an interview with Citizen TV, Atwoli said he would never run for any political seat for fear of failure and that he preferred to be an onlooker and supporter.
“I have never run for the elective seat because I fear being defeated. Yes it is fear of failure and to be very honest, I am a bad loser. I don’t like losing because when I lose I can’t eat. So I better stay in the corner where I am safe,” said.
Atwoli who was responding to a viewer who had posed a question.
“Please ask Atwoli, if he understands Kenyan political Dynamics, Why hasn’t he presented himself for an elective post?,” Shalakha Denis posed a question on Twitter.
Commenting on 2022 Presidential elections, Atwoli openly revealed who will win the Presidential election if elections were held today.
He said that DP Ruto will not win the top seat in 2022 citing that he has not been supporting the president in accomplishing the agenda they had set together.
Atwoli also expressed hope of a grand return of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), adding that the BBI referendum drive was intended to achieve equal distribution of resources across the country.
The COTU boss also denied claims made by DP Ruto’s allies that Raila Odinga is President Uhuru Kenyatta’s project.
Atwoli has in a number of times declared Odinga as the right man to save this country and come 2022, he will win the top seat by 10am.
