"We do not have two Presidents. We only have one President who must be respected at all cost."added Atwoli
"The President is a symbol of authority and the must be respected."said Atwoli
The veteran trade unionist tuned politician warned the aggrieved political leaders on the fight against corruption from attacking the president stating that President Uhuru is doing it for the well being and good of the country which he leads.
He added that the head of state is a father to all and no one can fight his father.
"The head of state is a symbol of national unity in any country and when you are serving that head of state then he becomes like a father to you; you cannot fight your father, you will be the loser."pointed Atwoli
