  • COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli did not abandon his children, a source who spoke to Kenyans.co.ke stated contrary to reports.

    An audio conversation was leaked online on Thursday where the workers' boss was heard engaging his wife over some disagreements.

    Atwoli was heard telling his agitated second wife, Rosalinda Wanyonyi, to leave their home if she decides to go ahead and run for an elective seat.

    The wife accused Atwoli of abandoning their children and leaving her the responsibility to take care of them an allegation the source maintained wasn't true.

    The source who's close to the family maintained that Atwoli has been providing for his children's upkeep and even pays school fees for all of them.

    According to the person privy to the matter who requested anonymity, Atwoli spent over KSh20 million for his daughter’s training in South Africa where she was studying to be a pilot.

    The source told Kenyans.co.ke that their other daughter was studying law at a local University while their last born son attends an International school in the country.

    Apart from his biological children, the COTU boss was also reported to be taking care of other 74 children from less fortunate families.

    Additionally, it was revealed that the vocal workers boss bought land and built a home for his second wife but their differences and Rosalinda’s unwillingness to settle their marital problems led to the separation.

    The COTU Secretary General was reported to have involved his second wife's extended family members to resolve their differences but this did not bear fruit.

    "She lacked the goodwill, abusing every step of these efforts and hardly available to consult other than busy with her campaigns in Webuye to capture a parliamentary seat,” the source stated.
