COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli on Wednesday said Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi should compare himself with his sons.
Reacting to a statement that was made by Abdullahi last week on JKL that he is illiterate, Atwoli said he went to the US to study a Trade Union course and compared the barrister with his son who is a well-known doctor.
“He should not compare himself with me. He should compare himself with my sons. You know very well my elder son is a professor of very high caliber in medicine…and medicine is a detailed subject.
“You were here when Jubilee Party hired him…can you compare him with Otiende Amollo? Paul Mwangi? Even my son who did medicine is now an expert in constitutional affairs,” said Atwoli.
Adding: “I was in the US doing a Trade Union course… Grand Mullah should not compare himself with me but with my sons…He should keep quiet”.
Last week the lawyer dismissed Atwoli saying he cannot advice the President on anything because he is barely literate.
"What advice can Atwoli give the President? Atwoli is barely literate. What advice can he give to a President? Maybe crack jokes or throw telephones," he stated.
He also cast aspersions over what Atwoli has done for workers over the years saying he is hell-bent on fighting DP William Ruto.
"He's running around peddling rumours as advice. It is tragic that as a trade unionist rather than helping workers he is fighting politicians like Deputy President William Ruto," added Ahmednasir.
