Agano Party presidential candidate, David Mwaure, has petitioned the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to deploy psychiatrists to assess the mental state of his Roots Party competitor, George Luchiri Wajackoyah.
Speaking during a press briefing on Thursday, June 30, Mwaure questioned Wajackoyah's mental fitness, citing his draconian and rather controversial methods of dealing with some of the country's issues.
He explained that the assessment would save the country a lot of time if conducted now as compared to a later date in the event Wajackoyah wins the August 9 presidential vote.
"I urge the IEBC chairman, Wafula Chebukati, to immediately constitute a panel of imminent psychiatrists to ascertain the mental state of this individual," Mwaure petitioned.
The Agano Party presidential candidate further proposed that if found to be unstable, Wajackoyah should receive the best treatment available in the country.
On the flipside, if the findings reveal he is of sound mind, he called on the government to fully enforce the law, accusing Wajackoyah of encouraging drug trafficking and consumption.
"If found to be of unsound mind, he should be accorded the best medical attention possible. However, if found to be of sound mind, then he should be arrested and charged in a court of law for willfully planning to commit and promoting a felony," Mwaure added.
Among the proposals by Wajackoyah that Mwaure differed with was the cultivation of marijuana in public spaces, suspending the constitution and rearing of snakes for export.
The lawyer cum preacher further called out the Roots Party leader for allegedly attacking religious leaders and asking Kenyans to abscond churches, accusing him of being a messenger of the devil.
"Yesterday he said that the Archbishop from Nyeri is a bishop from hell. The same fellow has urged Christians to abandon places of worship. In my view, who else but lucifer can give Christians such instructions?" posed Mwaure.
The Agano presidential hopeful vowed to introduce a mandatory toxicity and mental aptitude test for any individuals seeking public office.
Mwaure further disclosed that he would be launching the Agano party manifesto on July 4, 2022.
