Atwoli condems early campaigns

02 March 2012, 12:56 Bernard Gitau

Central Organisation of Trade Unions-(COTU) secretary general Francis Atwoli  has recently condemned the presidential hopefuls who have already busy in early  campaigns terming the move is ill advised and disastrous for the nation under the new constitution dispensation.

The outspoken COTU secretary general blamed the leadership of the two principal’s president mwai kibaki and prime minister in the grand coalition for failure of containing their supporters.

Atwoli said that the country is still embroiled in tribalism and is yet to heal from  what transpired during the 2007-2008 post poll  bloody skirmishes adding that if early campaigns are not stopped, then there is a likelihood of a reoccurrence of violence after elections.

He said both Uhuru and Ruto should seek a proper interpretation of  the constitution on whether or not they are  eligible to vie for presidency whilst quoting that the international criminal  is not a “ makadara or kibera court.”

Atwoli observed that early campaigns had given chance to incitement and that it’s the high time the two principals showed proper leadership to check on the same.
