Prior to the much awaited August elections, Prof. George Wajackoyah of the Roots party has continued to steal votes away from Deputy President William Ruto.
Ruto was shocked by the size of the throng Wajackoya drew when he visited the Vihiga County of ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi on Friday.
Residents of Vihiga, the region infamous for cultivating bhang, the drug Wajackoyah is riding, reacted favorably to his message.
Wajackoyah also vowed to people that if elected president in the August elections, he will revive the faltering economy.
He emphasized that in order to assist him in repairing Kenya’s economy, he will allow marijuana production in the county.
Wajackoyah declared, “We will make significant investments in bhang farming in order to raise more money and support our economy.
He was urging the citizens to support him in the general election on August 9 while addressing in the town of Luanda.
He added that in order to increase employment in the nation, he will make Kenya’s economy operate around-the-clock.
People will report to work from 8 am to 2 pm, 2 pm to 10 pm, and 10 pm to 8 am in our 24/7 hour economy, he stated.
Before traveling to Yala, Wajackoyah made a number of stops in Vihiga County, beginning in Chavakali in the Sabatia sub-county, moving on to Mbale in the Vihiga sub-county, Kima, Ebusakami, and Luanda in the Luanda sub-county.
