‘I Will Smoke Bhang During Our Swearing-In,’ Wajackoyah’s Running Mate Justina Says

Justina Wangui Wamae, the running mate for presidential aspirant George Wajackoyah, has claimed that she will take her first puff of bhang on their inauguration day if they secure victory in the August elections.

The duo, under the Roots Party, have promised to legalize marijuana, an incentive they believe will spur Kenya’s economic recovery.

Wamae, 35, says despite having never smoked weed, she is willing to smoke in celebration when they clinch the presidential seat.

“I have never puffed bhang but one thing I can assure you, I have even asked for permission from my husband, the moment we win, during inauguration, tutapuff, kishash (bhang) lazima kiwashwe. But its only for that day,” she said in a media interview.

The procurement expert further disclosed that she was attracted to Wajackoyah’s ideologies on his presidential aspiration and, most importantly, that he is supportive of women’s inclusivity in leadership.

“I had never met Professor before, but I really liked his ideologies, and he seems to positively think about the youth and women leadership, other parties are going for much older people,” she said.

“The fact that the idea was practical, a real idea, it really compelled me to support it.”

Wamae graduated from Daystar University with a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).

She first came to the limelight during the 2017 elections, when she unsuccessfully contested for the Mavoko parliamentary seat.

Wambui has stated that she believes the bhang business will stimulate the ailing economy and harness an economic revolution, similar to Wajackoyah who has promised to legalize marijuana if he wins the country’s top seat.

Wajackoyah, 62, rose to prominence after announcing his presidential manifesto agenda, which includes appointing eight prime ministers, suspending the constitution for six months, and implementing a four-day workweek (Monday through Thursday).
