SUMMARY

Atwoli noted that Ruto was to blame himself for his troubles in the Jubilee party.

Senate leadership change has already seen those allied to DP Ruto evicted from their positions.

The Central Organization of Traders Union (Cotu) boss Francis Atwoli, and a fierce critic of DP Ruto, says he holds no personal differences with the Deputy President.

Speaking today [Monday], Mr. Atwoli made it clear that he was only opposed to the DP's political ideology. "I am not actually in bad terms with the DP... He can welcome me to his house and vice versa, and we share a meal," said Atwoli.

However, Atwoli noted that Ruto was to blame himself for his troubles in the Jubilee party. The recently initiated Senate leadership change has already seen those allied to DP Ruto evicted from their positions.

The sweep started at the Senate house, ending with several persons being impeached from their house leadership.

Among those affected was the Senate Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen together with his colleague Majority-whip Ms. Susan Kihika.

The wave did not stop there as the ouster extended to reach the Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki, who was ousted last Friday. The sweep is now set to be extended to the National assembly.

The Cotu boss also agreed with the current and ongoing coalitions by different parties, adding that it would bring inclusivity, hence boosting the economy.

Atwoli told off those asking him to leave politics and focus on employees' welfare, adding that he "should fight for good politics, for workers to enjoy a conducive working environment."

Speaking about the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), he pointed out that the constitutional amendment was inevitable.
