Roots Party president candidate George Wajackoyah has summoned his deputy Justina Wamae for disciplinary action.
This is after the party boss accused his running mate of going against the party’s constitution by congratulating President-elect William Ruto.
“That you have in your utterances contradicted yourself on Citizen Digital and the KTN and recounted the contradiction hence your allegiance to the party manifesto is questionable,” the statement read.
Wamae was accused of making statements that admonished the party and supporting their opponent’s ideologies.
Other than associating herself with their rival, Wamae was also put on the spot for blocking Wajackoyah on social media.
As such, the party summoned her to appear before the committee for disciplinary action on August 26.
“Due to your continuous misrepresentation of the Party’s stand, the Party has suffered public ridicule and disrepute… It is in our knowledge that you have continuously disassociated yourself with the Party and its ideologies
“In line with the above and your failure to adhere to the Roots Party Constitution and manifesto, the Party finds it in order, to invite you for a disciplinary hearing on August 26, 2022 at 2:30pm, at the Party’s head office,” the statement read.

Earlier, Wamae had disagreed with Wajackoyah, on supporting Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate.
This is after Wajackoyah endorsed the former Prime Minister during his campaigns at an entertainment joint in Kisumu.
Following the same, Wamae vowed to support Deputy President William Ruto should his principal back the Azimio candidate.
“It is true there are allegations that my principal and party leader is supporting Azimio la Umoja candidate but we have not discussed that as a party, we have not agreed neither have I been consulted
“If push comes to shove and we need to take a stand on who to support, out of the other three presidential candidates who are our worthy competitors, then I will support the contrary,” Wamae said.
Following the claims, Wajackoyah denied claims that he endorsed Raila while campaigning at his backyard.
Wajackoyah dismissed the clip noting that he was still in the presidential race.
He noted that his words were taken out of context, adding that the video is doctored.
“We would like to categorically state that we have a presidential candidate who is on the Ballot and will win this Election. We have not and will not endorse any other candidate
“We would like to distance ourselves from those claims and assure our supporters that victory is coming,” their statement read in part.
