The bhang crusader however caught many off guard when he beckoned on Kenyans to relax, he got this. While addressing the media on Sunday, Wajackoyah called upon all Kenyans to remain calm as he was still optimistic that he was going to win the presidential elections.
Most Kenyans took this as a joke because in real sense this is totally ironical most so considering the fact that the numbers place him way so far behind his two most promising competitors, Kenya Kwanza's William Ruto and Azimio La Umoja's Raila Odinga.
As at Monday 15th August 2022, Wajackoyah had only gannered 53,947 votes out of the total verified votes so far by IEBC which is equivalent to 0.45% of the total votes verified so far.
As at Monday morning, Ruto was leading with a total of 6,135,177 votes with Raila following him closely with a vote count of 5,837,829 under his name which translate to 50.90% and 48.43% respectively.
Below are some of the comments from Kenyans on Twitter regarding Wajackoya's comments:
