Wajackoyah Suffers a Blow As a Petition Is Launched Against Him

Professor George Wajackoyah's presidential ambitions have encountered a significant roadblock as a result of a petition trying to prohibit him from running. According to the petitioner, George Wajackoyah holds dual citizenship, which is a violation of the Kenyan constitution.

The petitioner attests that Wajackoyah once ran for a seat in the British parliament, thereby establishing that he is a British citizen. However, he was disqualified for not having a wife.

The case is now before the court, and Wajackoyah's path to the president is now fraught with difficulty.

If the court grants the petition, there will be three contenders in the election for the presidency.

The Kenyan constitution stipulates that a candidate for the presidency must be a pure Kenyan and not a citizen of another nation. A Kenyan with dual citizenship must renounce one of them before vying for the country's highest office.
