Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah has refuted 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.
Wajackoya Accuses Ngunyi of Exploiting Roots Party for Political Gain
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.
“Roots party is a National party and does not subscribe to tokenism, a field Mutahi Ngunyi holds a PHD in,” Wajackoya’s statement reads in part.
Nonetheless, the Roots Party leader reiterated his commitment to usher in a period of economic liberation for Kenya.
“The Roots party remain committed to the Economic Liberation of Kenyans through the legalization of Hem,” Wajackoyah wrote.
Similarly, George Wajckoyah has been attending Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition rallies including anti-government protests that were organized by the opposition.
Despite not being allied to the coalition, the Roots Party leaders aligned himself with the opposition after he lost the 2022 presidential bid.
