The Secretary-General is known for such predictions, with one prediction being that of Imran Okoth, where he said the MP would win the Kibera by-election, and he won.
However, On Trump’s prediction, Atwoli argued that the President was to blame for not winning back his seat because of the way he mishandled the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter.
