COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli Road signpost in Nairobi’s Kileleshwa suburb has been vandalized. Atwoli has condemned those behind the act.
This comes just days after the Nairobi county government, led by Deputy Governor Ann Kananu Mwenda.
The road, which initially was called Dik Dik Road, was renamed Francis Atwoli Road.
Atwoli said, “Vandalization is impunity and primitiveness; I am against anarchy. However, the police will look into that.”
“In a country that believes in the Rule of Law, there are procedures and processes to be followed when unsatisfied,” he added.
The vandalization comes two days after COTU’S Atwoli had dismissed claims that the road signpost named after him had been removed.
Atwoli said, “People should stop wasting time celebrating fake news.”
“Nothing was removed to make you happy, don’t waste your time celebrating fake news! God’s wish is Paramount,” Atwoli added.
A picture of the signpost lying on the ground went viral on social media, fuelling speculations that it had been removed.
Atwoli wants the police to find out who did it.
“The Nairobi County Government has reinstalled the sign. If you think you came from the moon go try remove it again. Also, a CCTV has been installed for the security of the area,” Atwoli said.
