Kenyans on Friday trolled COTU Secretary Francis Atwoli after his wife joined the Deputy President William Ruto’s led United Democratic Alliance party (UDA).

Roselinda Simiyu Atwoli announced during Ruto’s rally in Bungoma that she has officially joined UDA.

Dressed in fully Yellow and green coloured attire which are the UDA official colours, Roselinda said she is behind Deputy President William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula’s Alliance.

“Let me introduce to you our new UDA member Roselinda Simiyu,” Ruto told the crowd.

However, Atwoli dismissed the political move saying Roselinda is no longer among his list of relatives.

Atwoli rubbished Roselinda’s sentiments saying she was handed to Deputy President William Ruto at Eldoret house in 2007.

Atwoli who moved to put his frustrations on Twitter said he has nothing to hold on to Roselinda despite the two having sired children.

“Ruto can add Roselinda to his list of wives from Bungoma and can now have three wives among them the two bearded wives he got recently,” said Atwoli.

He referred ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula as Ruto’s wives.

Atwoli said Western is in ‘Azimio la Umoja’ movement.

However, the Deputy President said UDA has no time for wrangles but is currently focusing on ensuring a government for all.

Ruto who is headed to Kirinyaga in the next planned rally says the Bottom up Development Economic model that is now fused with the ‘Pesa mfukoni’ and ‘Kenya Kwanza’ slogans is what Kenyans wants to hear and fully get involved in.

“We are headed to the right direction. We have to remain focused so that we do not lose track of our practical objectives. We need to form an all inclusive government,” said Ruto.

He rubbished the Azimio la Umoja’ initiative led by ODM Leader Raila Odinga saying it is a ‘few people’s project’ that lack Kenyans matters at heart.
