Naomba msamaha! Ruto tells Atwoli over ‘nyororo’ taunt

Published

on

Francis Atwoli, the secretary general of Cotu, has received an apology from President William Ruto for remarks he made during the election campaigns.

The head of state claimed Atwoli had asked residents of his hometown to remove trees, but that was in the past when he spoke to the public on Thursday in Kakamega.

President Ruto urged the leaders of the Western region to join forces with him in fighting for the people of Kenya, adding

“Unajua mzee Atwoli alikuwa ameambia watu wakate miti na vile vile kuna mahali kama kijana nilimkosea heshima. Mzee nakuomba msamaha. Na ile mambo yote ilisemwa kama kuna mtu alinikosea nimemsamehe tuungane tufanye kazi pamoja,” he said.

This loosely translates to, “Atwoli had told people to cut down trees and as a young person, I disrespected him. I am asking for forgiveness. All the things that were said then, and if there is anyone who wronged me I have forgiven. Let’s work together.”that he had also pardoned anyone who had mistreated him during campaigns.

In the general elections on August 9, Atwoli supported ODM leader Raila Odinga’s candidacy.

He vigorously ranted against President Ruto all across the nation as well.

As the campaigns heated up, the two exchanged some unprintable remarks, but that has since happened.

When Atwoli quit Raila’s ODM and started his own party, the United Republican Party, he said that this is when he and Ruto had a falling out (URP).

The President is currently on a two-day tour of Western Kenya, which has been a strong supporter of Raila’s campaign for president.
