On Thursday, Francis Atwoli, the Secretary General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions, spoke to the press at the residence of the late Professor George Magoha in Nairobi.
He reminisced about a time when Magoha made a firm decision, such as dismissing his son from the University of Nairobi.
Atwoli described the late Professor George Magoha as a man who was resolute in his decisions. He praised Magoha for his dedication and hard work in his field and for being a leader who stood by his decisions.
“He was a serious man and indeed very serious because he called me one day and told me I don’t want your son in my university anymore,” said Atwoli who had visited to condole with the family.
“He told me, Francis I have said no and my no is no, take your son to another university in the country,” Atwoli said adding that not even their friends would make change his stance.
The official also characterized the late Cabinet Secretary as an individual who was incapable of being bribed and was straightforward. He stated that Magoha would be laid to rest without having taken a single cent from anyone by means of deception.
“We, in the World of work know who is corrupt and who is not because we are represented everywhere,” he said.
He added, “Nobody will come here and say I bribed him to do for me this and that.
