Thursday November 22, 2018 – Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has reiterated his call for President Uhuru Kenyatta to stay on after his term expires in 2022.
Speaking when he met the Building Bridges Initiative team in Nairobi on Thursday, Atwoli said the Constitution should be amended to introduce the position of a Prime Minister and Uhuru should be the first occupant once he retires in 2022.
“People said I was not a normal person when I asked the President not to resign after 2022 as he is young. And if the people of Central want him, he can be a Government which can accommodate him.” Atwoli said.
He said the 2013 post-election row could have been avoided if the Constitution did not allow for a ‘winner takes it all’ situation.
The aging COTU boss proposed the creation of six Executive positions “so that everyone will be happy”.
