Wajackoyah promised to legalize bhang, shut down SGR, and deport idle foreigners in Kenya. 

Roots Party Presidential candidate Prof George Wajackoyah on Thursday, June 30, launched his manifesto at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC).

Wajackoyah had a ten-poin agenda in his manifesto with the first being legalizing bhang if elected the president in the August polls. 

"If we can grow Bangi in Nyeri alone, each Kenyan could get a dividend cheque of Ksh.200,000 every year from the sale of Bangi. If we grew Bangi in Nyeri alone, we would build 2 expressways in each county in Kenya," he stated. 

However, what caught the attention of most Kenyans during the launch was Wajackoyah's slogan, Tingiza Mti. 

Every time the root presidential candidate made a key point, instead of the audience clapping, the slogan was played Tingiza mti. 

Another point on his agenda was farming snakes, which he said that a test tube of snake poison would cost Ksh 600,000. 

Other agendas in his manifesto include; 

  1. Deporting idle foreigners from Kenya. 
  2. Exporting dog meat
  3. Hang corrupt officials in public 
  4. Shutting down the Standard Gauge Railway which he says is a symbol of Chinese colonisation.
  5. Introducing a 4-day work week.
  6. Suspending parts of the constitution that do not work. 
  7. Shifting Kenya's Capital from Nairobi to Isiolo. 
  8. Creating 8 states which will be governed by their own federal governments
