Outspoken Lurambi MP Bishop Titus Khamala has left Kenyans in stitches after daring COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli to come out of his hiding place, days after August 9th elections.
In a video which has since gone viral, the founding bishop of Cornerstone Ministries in Kakamega chided Atwoli to make his previous statements real especially at a time when Azimio is presenting its Presidential petition to the Supreme Court.
“Baba Atwoli, I’m talking to you, be fearless. Mzee toka nje! Get out of your hiding, we need you out here” Khamala said amid laughter from onlookers.
Khamala was imitating Atwoli’s previous campaigns slogan that has always been very synonymous with Kenyans.
Last year, the COTU SG told Kenyans that President Uhuru Kenyatta was not going to retire from politics after the August 9th polls advising him to continue rallying his support behind the Azimio -One Kenya Alliance Presidential candidate without fear and favor.
“Support your Azimio Preferred candidate without fear or favor. Don’t be intimidated,” he said.
He continued to state that William Ruto would not become the next President of Kenya and that he(Ruto) should be prepared to overcome a major lose since he won’t believe once the results will be announced live after the August polls.
“Najua August 9th we shall win the President. What I know Wengine watavunja redio zao, watavunja televisheni zao. They will not believe,” Atwoli has added.
A week ago, Atwoli was forced to break his deep silence after his photos with two of Dp Ruto Close Allies went viral on social media.
He clarified that he had called the meeting where he met the two leaders from the coastal region.
“I chanced upon Aisha Jumwa & Feisal Badar and we had a very good chat on positive and favorable politics for our country in which we agreed on so many things. For your information, as an elder I don’t get invited to meetings. It’s the other way round. I am the one who invites.” he stated in a tweet
