COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has trashed the Kenya Kwanza power sharing for sidelining Mama Mboga deal if they clinch power in the August polls.

Addressing parents and teachers at Friends school Kamusinga on Saturday during the funds drive towards the construction of two Storey dormitory, multi-purpose hall and two laboratories , Atwoli said that Ruto’s power sharing deal is not in line with his bottom up economic model adding that they would have included mama mboga, boda boda rider and cart pullers in the cabinet.

Atwoli said that there is nothing called bottom up economic model arguing that If someone has an agenda of changing the economy of a certain country he/ she should come up with policies in place that will govern the entire process.

“Those people who have been reading about economics I hope there is nowhere you have read about the bottom up economic model that is being spread by Ruto,” Atwoli said, adding that it’s only Raila Odinga that has the agenda to change the economy of the country and fight corruption.

Atwoli urged politicians seeking elective seats to have respect to others accusing Deputy President William Ruto for lacking discipline when articulating his issues in the campaign trails.

“You know I am very old and what I tell you will come to pass, Ruto will not the president of Kenya, Ruto is a bad young man, he has conned the government so much, we want Raila Odinga to take over so that he can streamline this country,” he said.

Atwoli said that some people in the Kenya Kwanza brigade should be in jail yet they are vying for elective seats in the forthcoming elections.

He said that Kenya Kwanza won’t lead the nation saying that ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula have started complaining about the conditions that Ruto have given them.

The COTU boss attacked Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka saying that he is the one who stood with Lusaka when he lost the governor seat to the incumbent governor Wycliffe Wangamati adding that Lusaka won’t make it in the Kenya Kwanza coalition.

Atwoli said that Lusaka would have joined the Azimio la umoja coalition so that he can defeat the Bungoma governor seat.

“I have heard Simon Nabukwesi complain here that Lusaka pledged to tarmac foot paths here at Kamusinga Boys but he failed, Lusaka won’t win this seat,” he said.

Speaking at the same function, Kakamega woman MP Elsie Muhanda said that Mudavadi and Wetang’ula won’t manage to deliver 70 percent of the votes from Western region saying that the duo has no support to hit the target.

She added that all ANC MPs ditched Musalia’s party and joined other parties in the Azimio la umoja trail.

“I am wondering how Wetang’ula and Mudavadi will deliver the 70 percent they are talking about even in Kakamega where I am the Woman MP Musalia has no support,” she said, adding that Kenya needs the president who will serve without giving conditions.

“In the Azimio la umoja Raila Odinga has not given us any condition yet he has helped our people from Western region by giving them top Jobs, the likes of governor Oparanya and Busia gubernatorial aspirant Paul Otwoma,” she said.

Moses Nandalwe, Sirisia constituency parliamentary aspirant who spoke to the media at the same function urged politicians seeking elective positions to remember their schools and support them to continue posting good results.

Nandalwe lauded Francis Atwoli for supporting him since he was a young boy, adding that when he becomes the MP he will support education and pay fees for bright but needy students.

“Without this man Atwoli I couldn’t be in the position I am today, he is a caring father and speaks the truth,” he said.

Nandalwe said that Bungoma County is the Azimio la umoja bedroom and Ruto won’t get any vote from the region.
