The Road, previously named DigDig road, was renamed after Central Organization of Trade Union Francis Atwoli.

The name change was unveiled by City Hall on Thursday, May 27TH, 2021, in the presence of Nairobi Deputy Governor Ann Kananu.

According to Deputy Governor Ann Kananu Mwenda, this move was to honor COTU’s Francis Atwoli for his role in ensuring that the employee’s needs and rights are protected.

Francis Atwoli has served at the helm of the Trade Union for over 20 years; he was first elected to the position in 2001.

Atwoli, who just got re-elected, took over the leadership of COTU from the Late Joseph Mugalla, and he will serve for another five years until 2026.

Atwoli highly appreciated the move; he said, “I want to thank the leadership of Nairobi County for this great honour and recognition of services to the government of the day, the community, and workers at large.” 

“We will continue to offer our unwavering support to the leadership of Nairobi City County,” he added.

Francis Atwoli lived in Kileleshwa for several years before moving to his new multimillion home in Kajiado County.

His new home in Kajiado has hosted prominent leaders and politicians in Kenyan, including the Former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Oginga.

A few months ago, the Nairobi County Government, through Ann Kananu, renamed the first avenue road in Eastleigh after the Late Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji.
