Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General Francis Atwoli has shed more light on his net worth. Speaking on NTV's Side Bar on Wednesday, Atwoli said that he acquired his wealth through clean channels.
He said that he has invested in different sectors of the economy. Atwoli, who has been very vocal on matters of national interest, revealed that he owns a series of vehicles and domestic animals. He, however, did not reveal his exact net worth.
He noted that the animals are located in different countries. He also challenges those linking him to corruption to visit motor dealers and different other officers to ascertain how he makes money
"I have told people currently I have two wives. I have 15 ordinary cows in Khwisero (Kakamega County). In Maasai land, I have 11 cows. I have 17 children. I have a Mercedes Benz and a Prado. You can go to Toyota and see how I acquired them," he stated.
Interestingly, Atwoli claimed that only two people, President Uhuru Kenyatta and African Union Special envoy Raila Amolo Oding are more powerful than him.
Atwoli caused a political storm in the country some time back after he claimed that Deputy President William Ruto will not be on the ballot box come 2022.
He said that Ruto lacks the qualities of leading this nation because he has been mentioned in endless corruption scandals.
