Francis Atwoli Re-elected as COTU Secretary-General

Trade unionist Francis Atwoli has been re-elected as the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary-General for the 5th term in office.

The COTU boss will serve for a term of 5 years after its delegates solidly endorsed him unopposed after his competitor, Seth Panyako (Kenya National Union of Nurses’ secretary-general) pulled out.

According to a post on his Twitter on 9th April 2021, Atwoli appreciated all Kenyan workers for supporting him and criticized politicians who refuse to pay taxes on their allowances and engaging in corruption.

“I want to THANK ALL KENYAN WORKERS for RE-ELECTING me UNOPPOSED, through their registered Trade Union Representatives, as the Secretary-General of @COTU_K. I promise to service you with all my might and strength and not betray the trust you have bestowed in me,” Atwoli tweeted.

Atwoli has been critical of the NGOs and other global institutions such as the World Bank that interfere with labor disputes.
