  • Roots Party leader and 2022 Presidential candidate George Wajackoyah has summoned his running mate Justina Wamae for disciplinary action.

    In a notice dated Monday, August 22, and signed by the Party spokesperson, Wajackoyah argued that Justina had made utterances that berated the party including a time she claimed the former Presidential aspirant supported former Prime Minister.

    Wamae was also accused of continuously and maliciously misrepresenting the position of the party and that of the party leader having blocked him and other party officials.

    She was therefore summoned to appear before the committee for disciplinary action on August 26, 2022.

    "The party would like to address you that you have continuously and maliciously misrepresented the position of the party and that of the party leader having blocked him and other party officials.

    "That you have in your utterances contradicted yourself on Citizen Digital and the KTN and recounted the contradiction hence your allegiance to the party manifesto is questionable," read the statement in part.

    The party further argued that in the two months that Wamae has been its member, she never bothered to peruse through the party’s constitution and the party’s communication guidelines.

    Wajackoyah also noted that he had assisted with accommodation and the official party vehicle during the campaign period.

    "Due to your continuous misrepresentation of the Party’s stand, the Party has suffered public ridicule and disrepute... It is in our knowledge that you have continuously disassociated yourself with the Party and its ideologies.

    "In line with the above and your failure to adhere to the Roots Party Constitution and manifesto, the Party finds it in order, to invite you for a disciplinary hearing on August 26, 2022 at 2:30pm, at the Party’s head office," continued the statement.

    The statement comes just hours after Wamae told the press that she had advised Wajackoyah against filing a suit over the Presidential election outcome.

    "As it is, we haven't had a meeting, because my boss had said that he is going to go to court. I spoke to him on phone and told him it wasn't viable given that we hadn't organised ourselves in terms of agent mobilisation.

    "You cannot leave your gate open and still cry foul that your stuff has been stolen. So, we're still thinking in these lines," Wamae pointed out.
