    He further revealed that he posses only two bank accounts and that he is open to investigations because he knows that all his wealth was acquired legally.

    "I have 17 children. I have a Mercedes Benz and a Prado. You can go to Toyota and see how I acquired them," he stated.

    He also took the opportunity to clarify to people just how powerful he is in this country especially after serving at COTU for more than 50 years.

    He claimed that he was third in command only after President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

    "After President Uhuru Kenyatta, it is Raila Odinga and then Francis Atwoli, nobody else, if you see any other person, they are donkeys. You can carry out your own research!" He stated.

    He also revealed that this term was his last at the Trade Union and that he was already grooming someone to take over from him.

    "Before I came in there were fights everywhere but now you can engage anybody (workers) from anywhere," stated Atwoli.
