Cotu Secreatary General Francis Atwoli has turned to God for divine intervention on woes facing maize farmers in the North Rift region.
Atwoli says it is unfortunate those mentioned in the maize scam are children from the maize growing counties.
Speaking in Eldoret during a graduation ceremony at Neema institute on Saturday, Atwoli said he is ashamed to even talk about the maize scandal because those involved are children stealing from their parents.
Atwoli surprised the congregation when he went into a three minute prayer asking God to intervene for the farmers.
He observed that the problems of farmers from Trans Nzoia, Kakamega and Uasin Gishu were not caused by an outsider but sons and daughters of the soil who formed flimsy companies to defraud farmers.
The confrontational Cotu boss speaking in parables said the maize scandal is like a child scheming to steal from the mother as the crowd cheered. ‘’God am your creation I have no power, I have no armed military, am helpless you gave us the opportunity to elect leaders who have turned selfish and are stealing from us God help us,” he prayed. He wondered how a cartel sneaked large quantities of maize into NCPB stores.
