Root Party deputy presidential candidate Justina Wamae has come out to dismiss the claims that they are being sponsored by another camp in a bid to divide youth votes.
According to her, their Roots party and their leader presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah has a better plan for this country and that they’re only getting funded by supporters and well-wishers.
“We’re not being sponsored. And this is a question I’m posing, why should we have the best ideas than the sponsor? Our idea is unique; we’re fresh, we’re new, we’re not being sponsored,” she said, during the deputy presidential candidate held at CUEA on Tuesday.
“Politics is about amplifying the voices of Kenyans, giving different interest groups their voices. Na mwenye anashinda tunampa heshima zake. So we’re not being sponsored by anyone, na tuko hapa mpaka mwisho. Nobody owns anyone’s vote, our role ni kuambia Wakenya that there is an alternative. Na Mkenya usiogope kupigia Roots Party kura ati juu wewe ni wa mtu mwengine,” she said.
She went ahead and said that politicians who spend millions of their own money on campaigns will only seek to recoup it once they get into office.
“Our mode of campaign ni kama ile ilitumika na Indian PM Modi. Wakenya wamechoka in a way they tell us come to Nakuru, tunasema hatuna pesa, mwingine anasema enda fuel kwa petrol station yangu, mwengine lala in my hotel I’ll give you food, bora mkuje Nakuru muongeleshe watu…that is our mode of campaign,” Wajackoyah’s running mate said.
“And, by the way, hakuna pesa sisi tumeibia Wakenya. Hiyo kasumba tunataka kubadilisha. And Kenyans, I blame you for poor leadership, because kila saa mwanasiasa akikuja, you want to be given something, and that is what motivates wanasiasa kuiba wakiingia ndani; they recoup, because there’s return on investment, hawezi ekelea pesa yake alafu unafikiria ata unakula freely. No wonder we have bad leadership. Kwa hivo wewe Mkenya ukituona tunakuja campaign, msituchukie juu hatuna kitu, sisi tuko na idea tunataka kupeleka Kenya mbele.” she concluded.
