The Roots Party presidential candidate George Luchiri Wajackoyah has revealed circumstances that forced him to drum support for Azimio – One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga in Kondele. This move earned him a ‘project’ tag.
Speaking on Sunday night during an exclusive interview at KTN News, the presidential hopeful revealed that he was forced to break the campaign odds in Kondele and appear to rally the electorates to vote for either Raila Odinga or himself in the August contest out of fear of being stoned by Raila’s diehard supporters from the region.
“When I went to Kondele where Ruto was stoned, I saw it coming (stoning) and I was like, what do I say here. And I said, Raila is a good man, because I know him, I have lived with him in London. I am here, he is pushing me to the president and he will be there at statehouse” Wajackoyah had said in Kisumu.
In his defense, Wajackoyh insisted that he had to take the route in order to avoid being stoned in an area that is known for its fanatical support of Raila.
While shaking off the ‘project’ tag, Wajackoyah termed Raila as a deep state project and DP Ruto as a government within the government project. Wajackoyah dismissed Raila and Ruto’s monopoly tag of clinching the country’s top seat and exuded confidence in defeating them in the upcoming election.
“Let not people panic, I am just a nobody. I have a mouth that is speaking something which makes people to follow me…. I have heard some people say that I am a project of the system aimed at complicating Ruto’s support base. Does Ruto have a basket of supporters that I want to take? Does Raila have the monopoly of becoming the president? Trust me I will thrush them on 9th August” he added.
The Roots Party candidate also accused the organizers of the presidential debate slated on 26th July 2022, alleging that there are plans to configure Raila and Ruto on one side and himself and David Waihiga Mwaure on the other side, to portray presidential superiority.
“I have credible information about the organizers of the presidential debate. They intend to put Raila and Ruto on one side and they side me with Mwaure. If we are not going to share the same podium, I will not attend that debate.” Wajckoyah he affirmed.
