Roots Party presidential aspirant George Wajackoyah has promised to address domestic violence should he be elected Kenya’s next president.
Speaking during his manifesto launch, the presidential hopeful noted the rising cases of domestic violence, further sharing his personal experience.
Wajackoyah revealed two instances where his wife slapped him.
“We shall talk because I know there are some men who are beaten by their wives, lakini mimi bibi yangu amenipiga twice and nasema it’s okay, I walk away. Akinichapa kofi nasema thank you mum. I walk away. Then she comes looking for me and says honey come back
“What about if I slapped her back? Would we have peace in that house? Sometimes there’s that love slap, someone beats you a little and then you from nowhere start punching her, for what?” He posed.
Wajackoyah declared that should he clinch the top seat, his government will come up with strict measures to cap the rising cases of domestic violence.
“There will be no domestic violence in my government. But even if there will be, we shall have to look at them and find out the solution. We shall not rush to police station when we have other mechanism that we can use to solve domestic problems,” he said.
As earlier reported on GOTTA.news, Wajackoyah promised to eliminate Boda Bodas if elected president.
He noted that introduction of marijuana farming in Kenya will transform the Boda Boda sector.
Wajackoyah said Boda Boda operators will turn to marijuana farming and abandon the sector which he says has limited chances of growing.
“They (boda boda riders) will be at the forefront cultivating and exporting bhang to generate millions of money for the country,” he said.
Adding; “We shall not need boda bodas on our roads because there will be nobody to carry since most Kenyans will be millionaires with money we will generate through bhang exportation.”
