A prayer by COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli for those behind the maize scandal has excited internet users.
Speaking in Eldoret during the 7th graduation ceremony of Nehema Institute on Saturday, the trade unionist noted that those stealing from the maize farmers come from within the region.
For the thieves, Atwoli asked God to “send your Son and angels to remove those thieves”.
He also asked that God rids Kenya of corrupt officials so that the country can change for the better.
“He (God) brought us to a country that is full hyenas and in the jaws of the dogs and He should deliver the country. God touch the heart of President so that he can save us.”
The COTU boss also remembered all those behind his being kicked out of the NSSF boar as well as those “greedy” officials that stole the NHIF monies.
The prayer has elicited reactions from Kenyans online. They said:

Francis Atwoli is a billionaire and cannot explain the source of his wealth because he is bribed by employers so as to opress their employees by understanding and not adhering to labour laws. Kenya is a doomed nation we need a saviour and not a parrot like atwoli https://t.co/XVE2udoTBx

Atwoli mocking God yet he has been on the helm of COTU for 5 terms and he has fought like mad to remain in the NSSF board forever. If there are thieves to be prayed for, hr should be the first to confess. pic.twitter.com/KePkYBtz13
