Kenyans Gang Up Against Bishop Margaret Wanjiru Sentiments After She Said This Concerning Wajackoya

Less than forty-eight days remain until the August 9 polls, and the four presidential contenders—Willie Ruto, Raila Odinga, George Wajackoya, and David Mwaure—are in a mad dash to sell their agendas to voters.

Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) senate candidate in Nairobi, derided George Wajackoya's manifesto this evening, prompting Kenyans of all political stripes to rally against her.

According to an internet video, the local bishop asked Kenyans not to vote for George Wajackoya, the presidential candidate of the Roots party, because of his stance on legalizing bhang in Kenya.

"Kuna mwenda wazimu mmoja alisema vile angependa kupatia vijana wetu bangi." Ambiwe vijana wetu watakuwa engaged in sports, wengine kwa library, wengine shule. Wanjiru remarked, "Hakutakuwa na vijana wa kuvuta bangi.

This decision has sparked heated controversy among Kenyans, with some denouncing it and urging her to focus on the church and leave politics to politicians. Kenyans responded as detailed below to Margaret Wanjiru's statements.
