  • Jalang'o dismissed Wajackoyah's candidature on grounds that he was inexperienced compared to other presidential candidates.
  • He said the hype surrounding Wajackoyah's bid would wane after the August polls are set and done.
  • Wajackoyah reprimanded Jalang’o for the verbal attack noting that the aspiring MP was too young to be giving him political advice.

Roots Party presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah has hit back at aspiring Lang'ata MP Felix Odiwuor, popularly known as Jalang'o, for scoffing at his State House bid and labelling him a political novice.

Jalang'o on Tuesday dismissed Wajackoyah's candidature on grounds that he was inexperienced compared to other presidential candidates, and that the hype surrounding his bid would wane after the August polls are set and done.

Wajackoyah, in an interview with Tempire TV YouTube channel, reprimanded Jalang’o for the verbal attack noting that the aspiring MP was too young to be giving him political advice.

According to Wajackoyah, the radio presenter-turned-politician should afford him respect like he would his own father.

"Jalang'o is a cerelac kid. I am old enough to be his father and since he has mentioned my name I hope he comes up short in the race for Lang'ata MP. How can you talk to your father like this?" He posed.

Despite having been cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission  (IEBC) to contest at the ballot, Wajackoyah likewise questioned Jalang’o’s education qualifications.

"We want to know where he (Jalang’o) got that degree," said Wajackoyah.  

A failure to meet all required academic qualifications has seen a number of candidates barred from contesting at the polls.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, for instance, has come under public scrutiny after a complaint was filed against him at the IEBC tribunal for allegedly not having the required education qualifications.

The Roots Party boss likewise dismissed assertions implying that he is a so-called State project.

The professor has surprisingly and effortlessly become somewhat of an overnight sensation after endearing himself to youth on the promise that he will legalise marijuana should he occupy the house on the hill after the August General Election.

Apart from legalizing and commercializing marijuana, Prof. Wajackoyah also said he plans to cash in on the lucrative anti-venom market by farming poisonous snakes and extracting toxins from them that will enable the country to locally manufacture antidotes for export.

Wajackoyah is expected to unveil his much anticipated 12-point agenda manifesto on July 2, 2022.
