Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) secretary-general Francis Atwoli has reacted to reports that he is currently hospitalized abroad.
Rumors circulating on social media alleged that the vocal trade unionist was flown to Germany over the weekend for specialized treatment. It was further claimed that he was in critical condition.
Atwoli through Twitter stated that he is in good and perfect health and urged Kenyans to disregard such propaganda.
“Avoid the propaganda circulating on social media platforms that I have been airlifted to Germany for treatment. I am in good and perfect health and busy executing my duties as entrusted by Kenyan and African workers,” he wrote.
The rumors about Atwoli’s health were fueled his silence and absence from the public limelight.
Earlier this year, Atwoli was also forced to clear the air after reports that he had been infected with COVID-19 emerged on social media.
“Let us avoid sharing fake news. Considering I am a person of interest, I will make it public if I were to get hospitalized. It’s God, the one God I pray to, who takes care of me,” he tweeted.
