Cotu boss Francis Atwoli has lashed out at Senators Moses Wetang’ula and Boni Khalwale for failing to attend his rally.

Atwoli is set to unveil luhya spokesman at Bukhungu stadium, Kakamega county on Saturday.

Nilikuwa nataka Wetang’ula akuwe hapa na Khalwale. Wamenidharau sana … kama sio mimi kumlipia Khalwale advocate katika petition yake hangekuwa senator,” Atwoli said.

(I wanted Wetang’ula and Khalwale to be here. They have disrespected me. If it were not me who paid for Khalwale’s court petition he could have not been the Senator.)

… waniheshimu yes! yes! … heshimu maoni ya walio wengi.” (Respect me! Respect the decision of majority.)

Dressed in a white Kanzu, grey coat and a white cap, Atwoli said he is not a small person in Kenya and should not be ignored at all costs.

… mimi sio mtu mdogo hapa kenya, mimi ni kiongozi wa Kenya. Na ni vibaya saana kama kuna mtu anasema Atwoli anatumiwa na watu … Wote wamepitia hii mkono yangu,” he said.

(I am not a small person in Kenya, I am a Kenyan leader. And it is bad that somebody is saying that i am being used by other people. all of them have passed through my hands.)

Atwoli asked the absentee leaders why they did not show up and cautioned politicians against defying the chosen leader, saying those in opposition to the same will face the wrath of the community.
