I hope God will forgive me for marrying another wife, but this is why I did it-Francis Atwoli

COTU boss Francis Atwoli

Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) secretary general Francis Atwoli on Sunday 13 October 2019 opened up on why he decided to marry KTN news anchor Mary Kilobi.

Speaking at Bukwala SDA Church where he was the chief guest at a funds drive, Atwoli made it clear that he does not regret marrying the presenter who has been a blessing to his life.

Known for his witty remarks, Atwoli left the crowd in stitches after revealing that despite his age, he needed another wife to travel around the world with.

"I also want someone that can travel with me. Since I'm getting old, I need medicine and someone who can tell me when I have due meetings." Atwoli said.


He stated that while his eldest wife will be taking care of his home, Kilobi would not only travel with him but also take care of him as he grows older and manage his schedule.

"As you know, the mother of my children my rural home. If I decide that I want to start travelling around with her, I'll find no home. Therefore, I must have someone who manages me and another to take care of my home," he stated.

In his witty speech, the 69 year-old trade unionist opined that most women often neglect their husbands, shifting their attention to their children and grandchildren.


"These women are so good. However, when they get children and grandchildren, they begin to see them as you and forget about you. You are left on your own. When you get old, you need someone who can give you medicine," said the COTU boss.
