George Wajackoyah: Cannabis Spicing Up Kenyan Politics
Kenyan politics will never be the same after the entry of an enigmatic, cannabis-loving presidential aspirant Prof. George Wajackoyah. The professor of law and the man at the helm of Luchiri & Co. Advocates has strongly come out to advocate for the legalization and state-farming of industrial and medicinal cannabis, which he claims is very lucrative.
The 63-year-old Wajackoyah and his Roots Party outfit have brought a new flavor to the ongoing presidential campaigns. Their slogan, “Tingiza Mti,” which is Swahili for “Shake The Tree,” portrays the fun, witty nature of the candidate.
In his campaigns, Prof. Wajackoyah dresses casually without forgetting shades and his customary durag. He dances passionately to reggae music and gestures with two fingers on his lips as if puffing a blunt. Such antics have made him a sensation, especially among the youth struggling with unemployment and the high cost of living.
Prof. Wajackoyah is a highly schooled man, boasting about 17 degrees, mainly in law. The politician attended top universities in the world, such as the University of Wolverhampton, UK, for a Bachelor of Laws degree, the University of Baltimore, USA, for a Master in Law, and the University of Warwick, UK, for a Master of Law and Development course.
Having come from an impoverished background, Prof. Wajackoyah was once a street boy in the streets of Nairobi before being sponsored by well-wishers to complete his secondary school education. His suffering didn’t end there because he had to take up odd jobs like digging graves, washing dead bodies, and working as a security guard in the US and UK to pay for his education and upkeep.
George Wajackoyah now lives lavishly, thanks to his hard work, and is seeking to change the fortunes of many unemployed youths who have been heavily affected by Kenya’s rampant corruption and debt. His approach focuses on taking the uncharted path that would see Kenya legalize industrial and medicinal herb cultivation and tap into the growing lucrative global cannabis industry.
Prof. Wajackoyah has captured worldwide attention due to his unique vision and recently went on a US tour of cannabis plantations, factories, and restaurants. The presidential candidate’s press team affirmed that he was a guest of US cannabis investors, willing to pump billions of dollars into the Kenyan hemp farming space and offer a vast, lucrative market for the product.
Prof. Wajackoyah likes to back up his words with raw data. His two-page, ten-point manifesto details how he plans to rescue Kenya from its problems using cannabis farming and other unorthodox tactics.
The Roots Party has traversed the country and mapped out areas with the right soil type and weather conditions to produce the highest quality hemp. A case in point is the country’s highly fertile Nyeri county, which they say can be raking about Kshs 4.6 trillion (around $39M) per harvest. One acre of the plant can earn farmers Kshs 8 million (about $68,000), and one year comes with two harvests.
Prof Wajackoyah has lived and worked in advanced economies like the US and UK, where cannabis laws are getting more relaxed by the day. African countries are also slowly catching up with the legalization wave, and some countries like Lesotho, Uganda, Rwanda, and South Africa have already given the nod for hemp cultivation.
To celebrate his victory if he wins in the 9th August polls, the hilarious Prof. Wajackoyah says that he will start his tenure as president with a day of public cannabis smoking at the state house to detox the nation from the misdeeds of its past regimes.
The sensational politician will face veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga and the current deputy president William Ruto in his quest to succeed Pres. Uhuru Kenyatta. Although his two seasoned competitors are way ahead of him in poll surveys, Prof. Wajackoyah is undoubtedly the man of the moment.
Besides legalizing cannabis farming, Wajackoyah’s other captivating agendas include introducing large-scale snake farming. He says that so many people die from snake bites yearly, yet a snake farmer could be selling cobra anti-venom at $6,300 per vial. Additionally, the country can export snake meat to China, where it’s an expensive delicacy, and the skin for making products like shoes and belts.
Kenyans can also expect a four-day work week from Monday to Thursday, a death sentence for convicted corrupt officials, and large-scale hyena farming. The candidate suggests an unorthodox cash cow in the form of hyena testicles, a highly sought-after commodity in China for medicinal purposes. One testicle reportedly goes for Kshs. 6 million (roughly $50,000), and the meat is equally expensive.
Such an educated mind as Prof. Wajackoyah strongly advocating for the flower is a massive win for the cannabis industry. The whole world awaits to see whether Kenyans will loyally vote for him in the upcoming 9th August elections and enjoy a new herb paradise.
