Prof George Wajackoyah has taken a swipe at Deputy President William, saying the Kenyan Kwanza presidential aspirant has been working for him.
In an interview with TV47, Wajackoyah reasoned that the wheelbarrows Ruto has supposedly been distributing will be put to good use should he win the August Elections. Wajackoyah said the wheelbarrows would be used to transport marijuana to the markets.
“When it comes to bottom-up, Ruto has been working for me. The good part of it is that he has given me a wheelbarrow to transport marijuana to the market. We shall not have a problem with transportation on the first 100 days,” Wajackoyah said.
The Roots party leader also tore into Ruto’s bottom-up economic model, saying it is outdated. Wajackoyah said Kenyans need money to solve their problems.
He also faulted Raila’s social welfare programme where vulnerable Kenyan families receive a Sh6,000 monthly stipend.
“Maybe Raila is going to sell Opoda farm, how do you come up and tell people that I’m going to give you Sh6,000. Where are you going to get it? That means Kenyans are going to be borrowing,” he said.
Wajackoyah also dismissed the claims that he is a project of one of the aspirants.
“If I say anything good about Ruto, you see Azimio people saying I have been paid by Ruto… or if I say something against Azimio, Raila’s people come in,” said Wajackoyah.
He reiterated that he is an independent candidate.
