Roots Party presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah says his family is in the process of acquiring Kenyan citizenship and join him in the country.
Wajackoyah, who is among the four candidates cleared to vie for the presidency on August 9th, divulged that his wife, an American, lives in the United States while their kids reside in the United Kingdom,
“I have children and an American wife. She lives in the United States and our grown-up kids live in the United Kingdom,” he said during a recent interview on Citizen TV.
If elected president, Wajackoyah has promised to introduce radical reforms including the legalization of marijuana to support its processing for medical use, and the upscaling of snake farming to produce antivenin.
He argues that marijuana and snake farming can generate sufficient revenues to help offset the national debt which currently stands at Sh8.4 trillion.
“It’s not only Marijuana, we’re introducing snake farming so that we can actually extract snake poison for purposes of medication,” he said.
“A lot of people are bitten by snakes in this country and we have to wait for snake doses from outside the country from pharmaceutical organizations. We have so many snakes in this country and we have so many snake eaters. One of the ways we are going to offset debt is by taking these snakes, extracting poison from them and manufacturing them into anti-venom, and shipping the reptiles to other countries where they are consumed," he added.
Wajackoyah, who picked Justina Wamae as his running mate, announced he will unveil his 12-point manifesto on July 2nd.
