  • Roots Party presidential candidate, George Luchiri Wajackoyah, now claims that he was approached and offered a multimillion deal to drop his presidential ambitions.

    Speaking to revelers at a club in Roysambu, Wajackoyah explained that a group of individuals reached out to him and offered him Ksh200 million to drop his presidential bid.

    He explained that the individuals, whom he did not mention, expressed fears that he was gaining popularity and were kin to block him from continuing with his ambition.

    "Recently they came to my place and said that this Wajackoyah, why don’t we just pay him Ksh200 million so that he can drop his bid," Wajackoyah revealed.

    He, however, disclosed that he turned down the offer maintaining that he will soldier on until he becomes the next Head of State.

    "I looked at them and told them that I am the most learned man in Africa and I cannot be compromised. I have worked in higher places like the United Kingdom and I cannot betray the trust of the people."

    The Roots Party presidential candidate, however, did not reveal the name of the people who approached him, but stated that they were also interested in the country's top most office.

    His sentiments come just days after the TIFA poll showed Deputy President William Ruto's popularity dwindling while his was on an upward trajectory.

    In the survey released on Tuesday, June 21, the legal scholar appears to have dented Ruto's fortunes after the DP's popularity in Nairobi county dipped to 25 per cent in June 2022.

    The poll further showed that the Roots Party is in par with the ruling Jubilee Party's popularity in Nairobi county at four per cent.

    Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party's popularity increased from 26 per cent to 30 per cent while UDA's has remained constant at 22 per cent.

    At the same time, Wajackoyah reached out to his supporters asking them to vote out both Ruto and Raila Odinga arguing that they are part of the country's problems.

    He accused the two of being part of the mess that is currently being witnessed in the country that has seen the cost of living rise, with many youths left jobless after leaving school.
