I’m not a State project, Wajackoyah declares
Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah yesterday refuted claims that he is a “government project”.
He said he is his own man and nothing will stop him from running for president on August 9.
Campaigning in Murang’a, Wajakoyah said his opponents were worried about his rising popularity.
“I want to make it clear that I am neither a government nor anyone’s project. I am running my own race for the people of Kenya,” he said.
He added: “If I were a government project as they claim, I would be flying around in choppers as others are doing.”
Some politicians allied to UDA presidential candidate William Ruto have claimed that Wajakoyah is being used by the government to distract the youth from backing the DP.
“I think they are beginning to feel my impact in the race and they are sensing defeat,” he said.
Hang the corrupt
He also dismissed a letter to the British High Commission by a lawyer claiming that he is not a Kenyan citizen.
“For the avoidance of doubt, I am a Kenyan citizen and the law allows me to vie for the presidency because it’s my constitutional right,” he added.
He promised to run a graft-free government saying anybody who embezzles public funds will be punished by hanging.
“I will ensure there is a law in place to have all those who squander public funds hanged so that they can serve as an example to others,” said Wajackoyah.
Wajackoyah defended his pledge to legalise the growing o cannabis, saying it can be used to transform the economy.
“The vehicles, aircrafts, ships among other things are made from fibre which is processed from the plant and this is what we want to tap,” he said.
