A section of church leaders has been trading barbs with the Roots party of Kenya presidential candidate George Wajackoyah over his strange manifesto.
From exporting hyena’s testicles to the legalization of bhang and prostitution, the 2022 presidential candidate George Wajackoyah’s controversial manifesto has elicited sharp reactions from across the country.
Wajackoyah who is eying to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, July 1, unveiled his 2022 presidential manifesto in which legalization of bhang and prostitution was given top priority should he form the next government.
While church leaders argued that Wajackoyah’s manifesto is not only unethical but also misleading, Wajackoyah’s 2022 presidential running mate Justina Wamae on Sunday, July 3, said that churches will be the main beneficiaries of his government, especially from the proceeds of bhang.
Justina said that should they form the next government; every churchgoer will be giving a minimum of USD 300K as tithe.
“If one sack of industrial hemp is USD 3.2 million and the pastor wants 10 percent from the congregants, they will have USD 300,000 from one follower, what about 1,000 followers?
“We are competing with you, we are giving solutions of how Kenyans can make money so that churchgoers can give pastors a bigger check in tithe,” she said.
The 10-point manifesto captured the Roots Party, Wajackoyah whose slogan is ‘Tingiza Mti’ said that revenue generated from the cultivating and exporting of marijuana has the potential to clear Kenya’s burgeoning debt.
“If we can grow Bangi in Nyeri alone, each Kenyan could get a dividend cheque of KSh 200,000 every year from the sale of Bangi. If we grew Bangi in Nyeri alone, we would build 2 expressways in each county in Kenya,
“If we grew bangi in Nyeri alone, Kenya will have 10 percent of IMF’s total cash reserves. In short, we will never have to borrow a single coin in the future,” reads the manifesto in part.
