  • Presidential candidate George Wajackoyah revealed that his administration would prioritise snake farming as one of the methods to offset the country's Ksh8 trillion public debt - if he is elected in the upcoming August 9 poll.

    Speaking during a Citizen TV interview on Wednesday, June 8, Wajackoyah noted that they would extract the poison from snakes and manufacture it into snake medicine which would be used locally and exported to other countries. 

    Once the poison was extracted, the presidential candidate noted that he planned to sell the snakes as a delicacy - particularly to the Chinese who are known for their love for the unique delicacy.

    Wajackoyah added that snakes had a ready market in the country and hence his administration would capitalise on the delicacy

    "We are also introducing snake farming in this country so that we can actually extract poison for purposes of medication. A lot of people are bitten by snakes and you have to wait for snake doses from outside the country through pharmaceutical corporations."

    "There are so many snakes and snake eaters in this country. One of the ways we are going to offset their debt is by taking these snakes, extracting their poison and manufacturing into snake medicine and giving the Chinese the rest to eat as it is a way we can offset the debt," he affirmed. 

    Wajackoyah also advocated for the legalisation of marijuana as one of the major channels of offsetting the debt in the country.

    He added that Kenya was trailing behind other countries in the monumental opportunity that would help the country produce millions that would be needed to create opportunity and ultimately solve the debt crisis. 

    This was corroborated by his running mate, Justina Wambui, who affirmed that China made Ksh140 billion from planting marijuana. 

    "China made Ksh140 billion from planting marijuana. They then lent us Ksh 9 trillion, meaning we are spending China’s marijuana money on our projects," she stated. 

    Other methods that Wajackoyah advocated for include methods of farming such as agro-economical methods of farming, domestic consumables, poultry and dairy farming.

    The professor pointed out that his administration would ban the Mombasa port which he claimed was riddled with controversy due to a few individuals monopolising the transport business. 

    "We have had Kenyan businessmen who have employed over 1 million workers to work on transportation of goods from Mombasa port to the interior of Africa. If those instruments of commerce have now fallen grey and the businessmen in the transportation business have been put out of work due to monopoly of business as people have defaulted on loans. I'm going to ban that port. We need Mombasa people to have a real port," he reiterated. 

    Wajackoyah pointed out that he would release his manifesto on July 2, 2022.
