Flamboyant COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has been sacked from being a board member of the National Bank of Kenya (NBK).
National Bank of Kenya was recently acquired by the Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).
In a public notice, KCB has announced the purging of the former board and appointed seven new directors who are expected to breathe a new lease of life into the previously troubled bank.
