COTU-K Chairman Francis Atwoli today in Mombasa rejuvenated faint hopes by hinting that Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) will soon be brought back since it has been on a recess.

Addressing the public during the roll out of Universal Healthcare Coverage Program led by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Mombasa Monday, the trade unionist said the bill which was proposed back in 2017 will be brought back to life.

“I want to tell all the Governors present here today that BBI is still here to stay, BBI is coming, it is a reality. We proposed it in 2017 that it could bring peace to this nation and after the recess it’s coming back,” stated Atwoli.

Atwoli has been bold on his opinion that the deputy president will not succeed being the president in many occasions.

He reiterated that DP Ruto should be prepared for an early defeat and not to doom Kenyans with his mere campaigns.

“It is in record, even take a pen and note that. He will be defeated in the morning just waiting for results to be announced in the evening,” he said.

He also emphasized on the fact that the president would remain the leader of Mt Kenya and would not retire at a young age like others.

“Uhuru will remain to be a spokesperson but he will not retire like other presidents who retire and become old. He cannot disappear,” he added

The COTU leader has publicly been viewed as Deputy Presidents number one opponent after opposing his presidential bid for a while.
