‘Iyo yote itakua bangi’: Presidential candidate promises to plant bhang along Nairobi expressway

by Amos Khaemba

On February 12, when Roots Party of Kenya leader George Wajackoyah officially declared his presidential ambitions he pledged that his first task as president will be to legalize bhang.

The presidential candidate pointed out that his government will use the proceeds from the sale of bhang to clear Kenya’s debt and improve the economy of the country.

Wajackoyah who is campaigning on the platform of ‘Bangi ni dawa’ believes that if well put to use marijuana had great economic value.

Now that he is among the presidential candidates who have already been cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, he has pledged to utilize any available space to grow bhang in he secured victory in the August elections.

Speaking at Bomas of Kenya on Thursday, June 3 after his clearance, Wajackoyah vowed to plant bhang even along the newly build Nairobi expressway.

According to the presidential candidate, there is no value in growing grass along the pillars of the expressway for beautification purposes when that space could be utilized for growing bhang.

“There are flowers planted where you are standing, for beautification purposes. That is a place that can yield regulated bhang. Even the things we have on the Nairobi expressway, flowers that have died. Why do we need all that yet people are dying? All that will be bhang,” He said.

At the same time, Wajackoyah revealed that his mega project where he will start marijuana farming will be in Bunyore, the Western region.

“That will be our viable project since it is one of the best climates to grow marijuana naturally,” he said.

His running mate, Justina Wangui recently revealed that she will smoke bhang for the first time during their inauguration if they win the August poll.

The legalization of bhang is not the only controversial point entailed in his manifesto, he has also promised to appoint eight Prime Ministers, suspend the Constitution for six months, and implement a four-day work week, where Kenyans only work from Monday to Thursday if his party forms the next government.
