A section of MPs from Kakamega county have said that they will not attend a meeting organised by COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli.

Atwoli plans to use the December 31 fete at Muliro Gardens to declare the Luhya community’s preferred presidential candidate.

MPs Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East), Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo), Andrew Toboso (Butere), Bernard Shinali (Ikolomani) Malulu Injendi (Malava), David Were (Matungu) and Benjamin Andola (Khwisero) have said they will not attend since they are not aware of the meeting’s agenda.

The legislators said “”Luhya nation is bigger than one person. Atwoli should have consulted other leaders from the region before settling on a candidate of his choice,”
