Renowned activist Boniface Mwangi as revealed the drastic measures taken by COTU boss Francis Atwoli to ensure that the Francis Atwoli Road sign remains in place.
Mwangi who went to the scene where the road sign was mounted last week shortly after unknown goons vandalized it and brought it down divulged that Atwolis has taken matters into his own hands.
He stated that on hand to ensure that the sign remains standing are three goons allegedly hired by the veteran trade unionist.
“I’m back! I went to see the illegal sign on Dik Dik Road. I find it laughable Francis Atwoli has employed three goons to guard it. Atwoli thrives on violence and intimidation to get his way. His CCTV is goons”.
Mwangi vowed that the sign will come tumbling down either way and mainstined that he has chosen to avoid a confrontation.
“We shall avoid confrontations but the sign will come down” Mwangi wrote.
The Nairobi County Government unveiled the Francis Atwoli road (formerly DikDik road) last week in pomp and colour but attracted criticism from a section of the public.
A few hours later, the road sign was brought down by unknown people before it was reinstalled by the county government with Atwoli daring any goon to bring it down.
“If you think you came from the moon go try to remove it again”. Atwoli stated.
CCTV was reportedly installed to beef up security in the area.
