COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli surprised viewers on Wednesday night after he decided to throw away his phone, in the middle of a live interview.

In the viral video, Atwoli received a call as the interview continued and when the host Jeff Koinange asked if he was switching off the phone, he tossed it away as Jeff remained speechless.

He went on to say that before phones came, people did not have problems.

Because before we didn’t have telephones we had no problem,” said the COTU boss as he laughed.

His action aroused mixed reactions from people who were following the show, some making fun of him while others explained how and why it was okay for him to throw his phone, however he wanted.

Atwoli had graced the Citizen TV’s JKLive where he discussed among other things employment, the economy and politics.
