Presidential candidate George Luchiri Wajackoyah has left his supporters worried after his running mate Justina Wamae let the cat out of the bag on his candidature.
It has emerged that there is push and pull between the two who have sharply differed on who exactly to back ahead of the coming general election.
Justina Wamae on Wednesday exposed her boss Wajackoyah as an unserious candidate after she confirmed that he was supporting the azimio presidential candidate Raila Amollo Odinga.
“It is true the allegations that my principal and party leader is supporting Azimio, but we have not discussed that as a party. We have not agreed, neither have I been consulted,” she said.
Her sentiments came in the wake of a viral video of Wajakoyah praising the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader as someone who has done a lot for the country.
In the video, Wajackoyah stated the following words in public: “I am here to join in the pack of liberators in this country, and the person I look at, the person who makes me stand here is none other than Raila Amollo Odinga.”
However, Justina Wamae was displeased with this decision of her boss Wajackoyah to back Raila, insisting that she would rather throw her weight behind a youthful candidate.
“However, let me make it clear that if push comes to shove and I’m asked to support the other three presidential candidates who are our worthy opponents then. I, Justina Wangui Wamae, a youth and a woman of sound mind would support the contrary,” she posed.
On his side, Wajakoyah who had been exposed for being Raila’s puppet through his spokesman Jeymo Ule Msee vehemently denied reports of endorsing the Azimio flagbearer.
“The notion that Prof Wajackoyah has endorsed Raila Odinga is a hopeless imagination and wishful thinking that only exists in the minds of a biased media.” Read the statement.
“We understand the various political camps have panicked over their expectations vs reality in this election and therefore have resulted in all underhand means to create a notion of winning this election. We would like to distance ourselves from those claims and assure our supporters that victory is coming,” Jaymo said.
