Roots Party leader George Wajackoyah has appointed a new deputy leader after his fallout with Justina Wamae.

In a notice dated Tuesday, August 30, the party announced the appointment of Yagnik Vinod Ramji as the deputy party leader.

Others were Naran Velji Arjan and Janet Akinyi Odhiambo who were named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and deputy national chairperson respectively.

“Following a resolution by Roots Party National Executive Committee, (NEC) in a meeting held at the party head office, we confirm the appointment of new party officials,” the notice read.

This came days after Wamae dismissed his boss George Wajackoyah’s disciplinary summon.

Hours after Wajackoyah summoned Wamae and set her hearing for Friday, August 26, she issued a public response where she termed the summon as petty.

She also told off her boss over claims that she offered her accommodation and a car during campaigns ahead of the just-concluded general election.

Wamae distanced herself from the party and asked Wajackoyah to carry on with the party affairs alone.

“I will not respond to pettiness. But on the non-existent accommodation and car, you imagined you ‘assisted’ me with you can withdraw in your dreams

“It is your party do what you deem fit, I will soldier on,” Wamae wrote.
