Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli has committed himself to working with President William Ruto in delivering development to the people of Kenya.
In his statement a day after Ruto took oath of office as the fifth President of Kenya, the Cotu boss said Ruto's speech had breathed a sigh of relief to Kenyans from all walks of life.
He said his message of reconciliation came at an opportune time when Kenyans need to be united to take the country forward.
“In his inaugural speech, President Ruto was full of reconciliation and hope and as COTU (K) we associate ourselves with his resolution and assurance of working with all Kenyans from the political divide in building a united and prosperous Kenya,” Atwoli said.
“As workers, we support the President’s call for unity and reconciliation as we hope and trust, and call upon, other Kenyans of goodwill to have all hands on deck.
Atwoli added that the country needs to move in one direction for the sake of peace and development adding that divisions will not serve the nation any good.
He said Kenyan workers risk suffering most if animosity and hatred is fueled among Kenyans.
“It is important to note that at any given time when Kenyans have failed to move in one direction, a problem has always occurred and those who have suffered the most have been workers, children and women.”
