Roots Party presidential candidate Prof George Wajackoyah now says Kenya will begin exporting dog meat to offset its burgeoning debt if he is voted president in the August polls.
Prof. Wajackoyah who has previously said that his government will legalise the cultivation of marijuana and introduce snake farming. He also says that he will export dog and snake meat to China and other countries to increase the country’s income.
“My government will export snakes and dogs overseas to make more money to pay off the country’s debts,” Wajackoya told supporters in Kakamega on Sunday.
The Roots Party leader was flanked by his running mate, Justina Wamae, and reiterated his plan to legalise marijuana market for export, saying his administration would plant bhang on the 4,494.8 hectares of Mumias Sugar Company nucleus estate.
“We shall have enough earnings to change the state of the economy,” said Wajackoyah.
To top it off, the presidential hopeful said his government will deport Chinese citizens living in Kenya, who he said have scooped lucrative opportunities at the expense of Kenyans.
“I will have Chinese citizens who have grabbed jobs in the country deported if elected,” he said.
All this, Prof. Wajackoyah said, was in line with his administration’s plans to address youth unemployment and fix the ailing economy.
“I will create a 24-hour open economy so that our country can prosper,” he added.
Should Prof. Wajackoyah and Ms. Wamae win the presidential race in August, they have promised that their government will cash in on the lucrative anti-venom market by farming poisonous snakes and extracting toxins from them that will enable the country to locally manufacture antidotes for export.
Although Wajackoyah’s bid has been enjoying increased popularity among younger voters nationwide, some church leaders have lately been warning their faithful to be wary of Prof. Wajackoyah’s ideals, labelling them immoral and unethical.
He has, however, maintained that he is prepared to counter perceived resistance that his unique proposals would evoke among some of the country’s residents.
“This is the only chance Kenyans have to change this country because we are only four aspirants, and it’s only me and Justina that have the real concerns of Kenyans. But if they want to follow someone who is giving them money, fine,” he said earlier this month.
The professor will face Deputy President William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance, Raila Odinga of Azimio La Umoja, and Agano Party’s David Mwaure Waihiga in the August 9 contest.
