Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah has given a condition for him to attend the 2022 presidential debate.
Speaking in an interview with NTV on Wednesday, Wajackoyah said that he would only attend the debate if Deputy President William Ruto and Azimio party leader William Ruto would also attend.
The Roots Party leader claimed that he could not waste his time if he was going to debate with Agano presidential candidate David Mwaure.
“Let me make it clear, if Ruto and Raila will not be at the presidential debate, I am not going to waste my time debating with Mwaure. I am only going to debate Ruto and Raila,” Wajackoyah stated.
Mwaure previously asked the Independent Electoral Commission (IEBC) chairman to constitute a panel of psychiatrists to ascertain the mental status of Wajackoyah.
According to Mwaure, the Roots party presidential aspirant has turned his presidential campaign into a criminal enterprise.
“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.
“I urge the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to immediately constitute a panel of eminent psychiatrists to ascertain the mental state of this individual,” Mwaure said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the 2022 presidential debate will be held on Tuesday, July 26, at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) in Karen, Nairobi.
