George Luchiri Wajackoyah of the Roots party has gone public to declare that 2.8 million votes were stolen from him in the 2022 general elections.
Wajackoyah, who garnered a total of 61,969, which translates into 0.4 percent of the total votes cast in the 2022 general elections poll, claims 2.8 million of his votes were stolen.
Wajackoyah said this on 29th January 2023 at Jacaranda grounds in Nairobi, where the Azimio La Umoja party leaders were conducting a political rally. Wajackoya was among the leaders who have been a great critic of the Kenya Kwanza government recentl
“Today I want to tell you that in the 2022 general elections, my 2.8 million votes were stolen, and Raila’s presidency was also stolen and given to a different person,” Wajackoyah said in part of his speech.
The roots party leader went ahead to claim that he has been involved in overthrowing several governments abroad and they are not going to overthrow any government, but all they ask is justice concerning the 2022 general elections.
“I have been involved in overthrowing several governments abroad, and Raila Odinga knows this, but we aren’t toppling any government; all we want is justice,” Wajackoyah said.
Wajackoyah further claimed he would support the Azimio La Umoja party leader Raila Odinga in ensuring Kenyans get justice and better services from the government. Wajackoyah also asked Raila Odinga to protect his Roots party since the Attorney General plans to disband the party over its ties with marijuana
This comes as a plot twist as Wajackoyah was among the first presidential candidate to congratulate President Ruto after winning the Supreme Court petition against Azimio La Umoja.
