Roots Party presidential candidate Professor George Wajackoyah recently released his controversial manifesto. The 10-point agenda, which focused mainly on legalizing weed, has rubbed many people in the wrong way. Here are some of the reasons WHY WAJAKOYAH WILL NOT BE PRESIDENT
George Wajackoyah is an outsider in the presidential race, and many Kenyans believe he can’t win. Read On to find out WHY WAJAKOYAH WILL NOT BE PRESIDENT
As one of his points in the manifesto, He publicly declared that he will hang anyone found to have stolen public money in public. Most human rights activists see this as a violation of human rights, therefore lowering his chances of winning the General elections
Another point in his manifesto is the shutdown of the SGR. SGR has been one of the biggest contributors to the economy, and for Wajackoyah to hint that he will shut the SGR down will not go down well with most Kenyans.
Saying that the foreigners are taking over the jobs of Kenyans is another reason why the controversial candidate will not win the elections. These reckless accusations may lead to xenophobic attacks on foreigners since the high unemployment rate is a big problem for most youths in the country.
His decision to also want the shifting of the capital city from Nairobi to Isiolo is another reason why Wajackoyah will not win the presidency. Nairobi is a global hub of business and tourism, and this decision by Wajackoyah will make a lot of Kenyans who live and work in Nairobi not vote for him.
On his campaigns, George Wajackoyah and his team are not bribing voters, according to kenyans.co.ke report. These make Wajackoyah unpopular with many Kenyans who are used to getting incentives from a politician. Money and household goods are common items that politicians give their voters to entice them to vote for them.
During his campaigns in Kisumu County, Wajackoyah told the residents that if they don’t vote for him, they should vote for Raila Odinga. Backing Raila, one of the candidates in the forthcoming General elections, shows Wajackoyah as a weak candidate and does not believe he can win the presidency.
Why Wajackoyah will not be president can be categorized in many ways due to being his first time to run for the presidency. As a newcomer in the political arena may have a lot of disadvantages and may lead to him losing the elections.
