Roots Party Presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah on Thursday launched his much anticipated manifesto at a ceremony held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC).
The 10-point manifesto captured the Roots Party top honcho’s intentions for the nation should he become Kenya’s next president after the August General Election is done and dusted.
The first point of Wajackoyah’s manifesto is the legalisation of marijuana while the second is commercial snake farming.
According to the leader of the Roots Party, whose slogan is ‘Tingiza Mti’, revenue generated from the cultivating and exporting of marijuana has the potential to clear Kenya’s burgeoning debt.
“If we can grow Bangi in Nyeri alone, each Kenyan could get a dividend cheque of Ksh.200,000 every year from the sale of Bangi. If we grew Bangi in Nyeri alone, we would build 2 expressways in each county in Kenya,” reads the manifesto in part.
“If we grew bangi in Nyeri alone, Kenya will have 10 percent of IMF’s total cash reserves. In short we will never have to borrow a single coin in future.”
Wajackoyah is also of the opinion that Kenya can also 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.
“If we did snake farming Kenya, each venomous snake farmer will earn an average of $6,000 or Shs.600,000 per vial of anti-venom. For example a cobra farmer will make $6,300 from a vial of cobra anti venom. If we harvest Black mamba anti-venom a Kenyan farmer will make $5,300 per vial,” says Wajackoyah.
Other items on the agenda include
- Exporting dog meat
- Executing corrupt government officials in public.
- Shutting down the Standard Gauge Railway which he says is a symbol of Chinese colonisation.
- Introducing a 4-day work week.
- Suspending parts of the constitution that ‘do not work’.
- Shifting Kenya’s Capital from Nairobi to Isiolo since the Eastern town is more centrically located and can be accessed from all parts of Kenya comfortably.
- Creating 8 states which will be governed by their own federal governments
- Deporting idle foreigners from Kenya.
