Wajackoya Receives a Warm Welcome In Busia as He Promised Residents Goodies After August Polls

Professor Wajackoya, the presidential candidate of the Roots Party, was welcomed as a hero in Busia town on Saturday. The law professor, who grew up in the border town, promised residents a bag of goodies if elected president in August.

Speaking alongside his running mate, Justina Wangui, at Busia Taxi Park, Wajackoya pledged to construct a state lodge in the town to allow locals to have access to their president.

Wajackoya reintroduced his pet project, the commercialization of marijuana, to the delighted audience while speaking fluent Dholuo and Luhya. According to him, 50 kg of bhang is worth more than 72 million shillings. If successfully exploited, the profits are adequate to pay off the country's foreign debts. On the other hand, Wajackoya insisted that the legalisation of bhang in his administration would be for business purposes only.

The former intelligence officer also threatened to pass legislation mandating the execution of anybody guilty of corruption.

“Ukienda China mwizi wa serikali ananyongwa, ukienda Japan mwenyewe anajinyonga, ukienda Britain anapelekwa jela. Ukikuja Kenya, anapelekwa bunge,” he said in Swahili, which loosely translates to: corrupt people are executed in China. They hang themselves in Japan. In the United Kingdom, they are imprisoned. In Kenya, the corrupt are elected to parliament.

In his manifesto, Wajackoya also promises to reduce official working days from 6 to 4 to allow Muslims, Seventh-day Adventists, and Sunday worshippers time to go to churches and mosques.
