Central Organization of trade union COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has dismissed claims that he is the president’s advisor.
“I’m just the supporter of the president, he has eligible advisors I’m not his advisor. “he said.
Speaking on local television station on Wednesday night, Atwoli said that he has no personal problem with the deputy president William Ruto.
Atwoli has been severally speaking against the deputy president’s activity in the country saying he’s trying to ‘outshine’ the president.
“I have said severally that I have no problem with the DP, he requires to hire good advisors for him to ascend to power. He is a good politician ho can go places but requires an experienced advisor.” He said.
Political parties in the country have been punishing defiant members with jubilee Party’ National Disciplinary on Wednesday morning hearing from charged members over complains filed against them including missing the joint meeting conveyed by the party on May 11 at State House Nairobi.
“Creating two houses in one house can never work. The party fights currently are a matter of party disciplines. Leadership is a collective responsibility.” He said.
Political temperatures in the country seems to take a notch high as both the ruling and opposition parties cleanse their houses and defiant members removed from committee positions.
Members allied to deputy president have dismissed the whip terming it as an intimidation to the DP’s tent.
