Moses Kuria sides with Francis Atwoli

Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria was once again at it rebuking the critics following the recent uproar in naming the former DikDik road after COTU secretary-general Francis Atwoli.

The Kileleshwa road was recently renamed to Francis Atwoli road by the Nairobi County government under the leadersship of governor Anne Kananu.

The move spiked sharp criticism from the netizens, with a number raising concerns as to why the road was named after the COTU boss.

Taking to social media in defense of the COTU SG and the government of Nairobi County Kurian noted that unless governor Kananu violated the law, then they were good to go.

“I disagree with those opposing the naming of Dik Dik Avenue after Atwoli. It is the prerogative of the Nairobi Governor unless you demonstrate that she broke the law,” Kuria argued.

The signage was later vandalized last week on May 27, 2021 by unknown people after attracting the wrath of netizens on its renaming after Atwoli.

City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdulahi was on the record clling it a disgrace, seeing no worth renaming the road after Atwoli.

“Total disgrace to name a street in Nairobi after Atwoli. What are we telling poor workers he abandoned for the sake of my beloved Jubilee?

He is a billionaire in a country where labor is enslaved by capital owners. He dines and wines with the rich and powerful,” Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi stated.

Kananu however defended the move stating that it was in honor of the unionist five decade long and outstanding service to the Kenyan workers.

“This road has been renamed after my good friend and brother, Francis Atwoli, in recognition of his selfless contribution and agitating for the rights of Kenyan workers in the last 54 years,” Kananu said.
