Is Francis Atwoli more powerful than the Deputy President William Ruto?
A majority of Kenyans argue that Uhuru Kenyatta is the most powerful person in Kenya followed by his deputy William Samoei Ruto. NASA leader Raila Odinga comes third and President Moi and Safaricom chief Bob Colymore come at position 4th and 5th respectively.
However, COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli is of a contrary opinion. According to Atwoli, President Uhuru Kenyatta comes first, Raila Odinga second and himself (Francis Atwoli) third as the most powerful and influential individual in Kenya.
That means, opposition leader Raila Odinga is more powerful than the Deputy President of Kenya William Ruto and former President Moi. As if that is not enough, a man who’s in charge of Kenyan workers welfare is more powerful than a deputy president of the same country, really?
He challenged Jeff that someone could be popular but negatively. Well, if that’s the case then i suggest MaDVD and Weta should always shut up when the their boss (Atwoli) is talking.
