Fire is consuming the Roots Party after its Presidential candidate and his running mate differed on who to endorse for the August 9 polls.
Roots Party of Kenya presidential candidate George Wajackoyah and his running mate Justina Wamae are reportedly falling out over the issue
On Wednesday reports emerged about Wajackoyah endorsing Azimio candidate Raila Odinga.
Moments later Justina came out and said she would take a contrary opinion.
The fires was stirred when Justina confirmed that Wajackoyah was supporting Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
“It is true the allegations that my principal and party leader is supporting Azimio, but we have not discussed that as a party. We have not agreed, neither have I been consulted,” Justina said.
She however said that the Roots party had not taken a stand on who to support
“However, let me make it clear that if push comes to shove and I’m asked to support the other three presidential candidates who are our worthy opponents then.
“I, Justina Wangui Wamae, a youth and a woman of sound mind would support the contrary,” Justina added.
Roots Party however, clarified that the party leader had not endorsed Raila.
“We understand the various political camps have panicked over their expectations vs reality in this election and therefore have resulted in all underhand means to create a notion of winning this election.
“We would like to distance ourselves from those claims and assure our supporters that victory is coming,” said a statement from the party
