After Reacting to a post shared on Twitter by human rights activist Boniface Mwangi where he applauded the move to have the roadside pulled down, Atwoli termed the move as a form of impunity and primitivity.

This sparked a Twitter feud, with lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi arguing that naming a street after Atwoli was a shame.
“To name a Nairobi street after @AtwoliDza is a disgrace.” What are we telling the poor workers he abandoned in order to celebrate my BELOVED JUBILEE? He is a BILLIONAIRE in a country where capitalists enslave labor. He dines/wines with the wealthy/powerful and looks down on the poor,” the city attorney stated.
” The Nairobi County Government has reinstalled the sign. If you think you came from the moon go try remove it again. Also, a CCTV has been installed for the security of the area.”

As usual, Team KOT went ahead and reacted to this post with some criticizing the CCTV installation:
Imagine using CCTV to protect a road sign. A road sign. Watu wanaporwa mchana na CCTV hazisaidii, but safety ya road sign ni more important. Also, how is this a sign of respect to you if the “respect” has to be watched 24/7 by poor county askaris for it to stick? Ushenzi!
