The IEBC chairman has been asked to constitute a panel of psychiatrists to ascertain the mental status of the Roots Party presidential candidate.

Agano Party presidential candidate David Mwaure has called for the mental examination of Roots Party presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah.

In a statement to newsrooms on Thursday, June 30, Mwaure asked IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to constitute a panel of psychiatrists to ascertain the mental status of Wajackoyah.

According to the Agano presidential candidate, the Roots party presidential aspirant had turned his presidential campaign into a criminal enterprise.

Mwaure poked holes into the pledges of Wajackoyah that included legalizing of marijuana and and the suspension of the constitution.

“Kenyans have watched in shock and awe as Prof. Wajackoyah encourages drug trafficking and consumption, planting of bhang in public places, opening of bars in schools and suspending the constitution. The same fellow has the temerity to insult church leaders and urge Christians to abandon their places of worship. Whoe else but Lucifer himself can give Christians such instructions?

“I urge the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to immediately constitute a panel of eminent psychiatrists to ascertain the mental state of this individual,” read part of Mwaure’s statement.

Mwaure added that if Wajackoyah was found to be of unsound mind, he should be accorded medical attention as soon as possible.

However, he said that if he was to be found of sound mind, he should be arrested and charged in a court of law for willfully planning to commit a felony.

Mwaure maintained that if he is elected as president, he would introduce mandatory toxicity and mental aptitude tests for every Kenyan aspiring for office.

Wajackoyah has in recent days elicited mixed reactions over his plans for the country if he clinches the tip seat in the August polls.
