COTU boss Francis Atwoli says Boni Khalwale will die a beggar
Masolo Mabonga|April. 13, 2019
- Atwoli claimed Khalwale was a disgrace to the luyha nation
- The trade unionist said the former legislator had lacked political stand and would die poor
- The COTU boss also claimed the FORD Kenya deputy party leader will never be the governor of Kakamega county
-Khalwale has been accusing Atwoli of frustrating efforts of Luhya leaders seeking to be president
A seemingly much vexed COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has launched a scathing attack at former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwalwe, condemning him to eternal poverty.
The two leaders from mulembe nation have recently been embroiled in nasty verbal attacks over the unity and political trajectory of the community.
The firebrand trade unionist who was speaking in Lamu on Saturday, April 13, during a fundraiser, castigated the FORD Kenya deputy party leader saying he would die a beggar for the rest of his life because he had become a disgrace to his parents and the Luhya community.
"I pray to God that he dies a beggar because he was taken to school to bring change in the society but he has failed, he is a disgrace to his parent," said the unionist
Atwoli, who hails from Kakamega county, further rubbished Khalwale's ambitions of becoming the next governor of the county.
"He will never be the governor of Kakamega county, he has no political stand and has done nothing tangible to the people to warrant what he is seeking,"said Atwoli
Escalating the attack at the former legislator, the COTU boss took a swipe at the politician claiming his name, Khalwale, referred to a sick person in luhya dialect.
"Khalwale means a sick person in luhya, he should not be listened to because he is sick," he added
The two leaders have differed sharply over the political direction of mulembe nation with Khalwale often accusing Atwoli of frustrating presidential ambitions of Luhya leaders by supporting politicians from other communities.
"Atwoli says that we should unite and support one of us to be president, but when he goes to Nairobi, he declares support to Uhuru and Raila. Now he is supporting a referendum so that Uhuru can vie for third term. If Uhuru goes for a third term , how will Mudavadi or Wetang'ula be president,"said Khalwale in a past public address
