Francis Atwoli, the head of the Central Organization of Trade Unions, has reprimanded Kenyans who have been grumbling about high taxes and living expenses.
Atwoli emphasized that President William Ruto was very clear about his plans during the 2022 presidential campaigns in a video that went viral.
He claimed that Ruto had made it plain that he wanted to build the nation with the help of every Kenyan.
According to Atwoli, Ruto is currently asking Kenyans to donate resources so that he can carry out his pledge to build the nation.
“Even currently, people are complaining of the high cost of living, price of things has gone up, oh we voted for this government but better William Samoei Ruto.
He was very clear when he was campaigning. He told you wewe mama mboga, wewe mtu wa boda boda and everybody that this government will build with you,” he said.
“Sasa ukiambiwa leta mbao, leta jembe, let vitu tujenge hii serikali unarudi nyuma unasema heri tungepigia Raila Odinga. (When you are told to bring wood and a plow to help build the country, you go back and start saying you should have voted for Raila Odinga)”
It’s time for Kenyans to accept that some things are unchangeable, according to Atwoli.
He went on to say that it’s time for them to concede that Ruto is in charge and give him time to carry out his national agenda.
“We must accept for him to implement his agenda because there are some situations you cannot change for either five years or 10 years.”
Atwoli is one of the prominent Kenyan politicians who actively opposed President William Ruto.
He supported Raila Odinga, the leader of Azimio, who was running for president for the fifth time.
Shortly after Ruto’s victory was declared, Atwoli changed sides and proclaimed his unwavering support for the President.
