The Roots party presidential candidate, George Wajackoyah unveiled his presidential ballot portrait 97 days to the August General Election.
Making the portrait public through Twitter on Wednesday, May 3, Wajackoyah captioned his announcement with a call to his supporters to ensure they cast their votes early in the morning.
The presidential hopeful further continued to remind his followers of his belief that bhang is an important medicinal plant.
“The 5th’s Official presidential portrait on the ballot paper. Pigeon Kura asubuhi. Bangi ni data” the presidential candidate tweeted.
In the portrait that he shared, he is dressed casually and with a red headscarf.
Wajackoyah, who became the first presidential candidate to name a woman as a presidential running mate, has publicly championed the legalization of marijuana.
Legalisation of Marijuana was among the key agendas that the presidential hopeful unveiled on Saturday, February 13, saying it will improve the livelihoods of many Kenyans.
The presidential candidate promised to use the proceeds from the sale of bhang to clear Kenya’s debt.
“Our main job would be growing Marijuana and selling it to foreign consumers. This would generate a lot of money which would in return be used for the benefit of the country,” Wajackoyah said.
“We have been fooled by western and especially Christian notion that bhang is bad. However, they (the Europeans) are using the same drugs which they term harmful such us whiskey and even smoking bhang itself,” He added.
The presidential hopeful also said he will suspend the Constitution in the first six months to “allow Kenyans to decide on the kind of Constitution that they want”
