COTU Boss Francis Atwoli Responds as the Francis Atwoli Road Sign Goes Up in Flames

COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has responded to the shocking incident in which unknown persons set the Francis Atwoli road sign in Kileleshwa on fire.

A series of photos widely shared on social media showed the road sign surrounded by tyres and newspapers.

The photos also showed the road sign up in flames having been vandalised after the road was renamed in honour of COTU Secretary-General. 

The viral photos saw Atwoli take to social media to give his thoughts on the lawless act that saw a honorary road named in his honour dragged into scandals that have been running for tweeks.

“Bringing down an honorary road sign under my name doesn’t hurt me. On the flip side, it will haunt those who are behind it for life,” mentioned Atwoli.

The COTU boss added that the signage was an act of honour bestowed to him taking into account his many years of service.

The road sign has been at the center of controversy and this was the second time that it was being vandalized.

It was first brought down by unknown criminals and was re-erected by the Nairobi County Government amid raging debate online.

Afterwards, CCTV was reportedly installed at the location to deter the goons even as activist Boniface Mwangi alleged that the CCTV in question were actually goons stationed there by the COTU boss.

“If you think you came from the moon go try to remove it again,” Atwoli slammed.

“I am really grateful for this kind gesture. No one has honoured me in this way. Thank you, madam Governor,” Atwoli appreciated the kind gesture by Nairobi Governor Anne Kananu at the time of launching the road.
