Roots Party deputy presidential candidate in the 2022 elections Justina Wamae has said George Wajackoya became Azimio Coalition project days to their manifesto launch.
Through a tweet on August 13, Justina Wamae revealed that Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah agreed to be bought by the Azimio Coalition few days to their Manifesto Launch,
“Let it be known the man was never a project until few days to Manifesto launch, Team Justina provided the requirements to be cleared by IEBC,” her tweet reads.
Moreover, Justina also refuted claims that she was part of plan to reduce ‘Ruto’s Hype’ during their manifesto launch.
Justina Wamae Says She Refused to be Used as a Puppet
She further noted that Wajackoyah became violent to her after being paid off, leading to the end of their collaboration.
“He knows in his heart. This revelation explains why he resulted in violence and intimidation, thinking I will ask for the little money he got from the state,” She stated.
“From that day till today I have never spoken to that Rastaman. Kenyans, I REFUSED to be used as a puppet and you saw the PUSHBACK. I couldn’t do much because I wasn’t the owner of the party. The agony I went through till they attempted to assassinate me,” Wamae revealed.
In addition, Wamae while reacting to Mutahi Ngunyi’s statement that Wajackoyah was paid to disrupt Ruto’s presidential bid noted that her Party leader then was also paid to disrupt the presidential debate.
“There is a bit Mutahi Ngunyi forgot to mention about the day of the debate. They had paid ‘him’ to go cause drama during Presidential Candidate Ruto’s debate at Catholic university. But the stern warning by the organizers sent chills down ‘his’ spine and he feared for his life,” she wrote.
Wajackoyah Denies Ngunyi’s Claims
Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah denied claims made by Mutahi Ngunyi that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition funded his Manifesto Launch in 2022 to sabotage William Ruto’s Manifesto Launch.
According to the political analyst, Roots Party’s manifesto launch was funded to irritate William Ruto and dent his presidential bid.
“Dear Wajackoyah. At the core, you are what Political Scientists call a Useful Idiot. Clever, but Stupid. That is why we funded your Manifesto launch to irritate Ruto. If I was allowed to use you, a run-off was Inevitable. And Babaman would be president today,” Ngunyi wrote in a tweet on August 12.
However, Wajackoyah in a statement on Saturday, August 12 slammed Ngunyi saying his remarks were baseless, and unfounded.
“The remarks are baseless, unfounded and serve to insult our party,” the statement read in part.
He further accused the political analyst of exploiting Roots Party for personal political gain with intentions of securing a role within President William Ruto’s government.
“For a man who survives on intellectual harlotry and peddling false political conjectures, it is least worrying that he will use our party to kneel before Mr. Ruto We are aware of Ngunyi’s frantic pleasing of the president and refuse to be used as an entry narrative in unholy political matrimony,” Wajackoyah stated.
Moreover, the Roots Party leader also criticized Mutahi Ngunyi claiming he did not become successful through tokens like the political analyst.
