Kenyan eccentric politician managed to attract attention with his interesting promises

George Luchiri Wajackoyah, once a street kid in Nairobi and a gravedigger in England, has managed to garner attention on the political scene with his quirky style.

Wajackoyah, who announced that he will legalize marijuana, breed snakes and sell hyena testicles to China to offset Kenya’s huge debt, believes he can come to power in Kenya with these promises.

Wajackoyah, 63, often campaigns in a tracksuit and barefoot. But this gray-bearded, bandanna-wearing eccentric lawyer has already shaken the balance in the election race and is a candidate who could push the runoff in Kenya’s presidential race.

Election campaign with rusty truck and reggae music

Considered an unpredictable populist, Wajackoyah gathers young people around him and tells them his promises, with reggae music rising from the speakers in his rusty campaign truck.

Wajackoyah is yelling “bang, bang”, fist bowing, and smiling at her supporters, while committing to legalize marijuana to ease Kenya’s $70 billion debt burden.

Wajackoyah’s motto is “I will be president of all”: “Choose the person, not the party.”

Wajackoyah is known as a lawyer with a fondness for jewellery. Wajackoyah says it was pulled from the slums of Nairobi by world-renowned Kenyan fossil researcher and environmentalist Richard Leakey and a handful of people at the Hare Krishna temple.

Wajackoyah, who enrolled in police training and earned the rank after high school in 1980, served as a spy during the autocratic regime of then-president Daniel arap Moi.

Wajackoyah, who led the investigation into one of Kenya’s most high-profile murders, the 1990 murder of foreign minister Robert Ouko, was arrested and tortured before being deported to Britain.

Wajackoyah claims she holds 17 degrees, mostly in immigration and refugee law, but has yet to be confirmed.

Wajackoyah has made the legalization of cannabis for recreational and medical use a cornerstone of its 10-point campaign agenda.

Marijuana, poison, testicles and narrowwood

Marijuana is illegal in Kenya, but Wajackoyah says it has the potential to unlock billions of dollars, generating revenues of up to $76 billion per year. However, there is no study to support this claim.

His manifesto also includes exporting hyena testicles, said to have value in Chinese medicine, exporting dog and snake meat, and selling poisons and antidotes.

“We will breed snakes. Every venomous snake farmer will earn an average of $6,000 per bottle of antidote,” said Wajackoyah, and promises that “anyone caught or convicted of stealing public money will be publicly hanged.”

Another remarkable promise is to reduce the work week to four days.

It is predicted that Wajackoyah, who is married to an American citizen and has three children, could garner enough votes to trigger a second round between leading Raila Odinga and William Ruto.
