Wajackoyah says Canada is ready to buy marijuana from Kenya » Capital News
NAIROBI, Kenya, March 18 – Presidential aspirant George Wajackoyah says Canada has assured him of a ready market for marijuana.
Speaking at his official campaign launch on Thursday, the lawyer confirmed that his political party, Roots Party, is officially and fully registered and his name will appear on the ballot on August 9.
“The Canadian government has assured me by proxy that they have a ready market for marijuana. They legalized marijuana. Last year alone, they got $484 billion (KSh55.3 trillion) from trade,” he said.
He further pointed out that the weed trade will help Kenya repay some of the external debt it has incurred.
“If Canada legalized, Uganda legalized, South Africa legalized, Lesotho legalized, Morocco legalized recently, what is wrong with us Kenyans. Why would we really depend on addiction? We need to do something about this, and my government will ensure that as soon as we take over, we will legalize marijuana for debt settlement purposes,” he said.
This comes after he announced his manifesto some time ago consisting mainly of a plan to legalize marijuana for debt settlement purposes.
“We will sell ganja and repay all their loans to them. Someone tells us to take wheelbarrows to take us back to the ancient century. Let’s grow and sell weed and make everyone happy financially,” Wajackoyah said.
He also proposed that the death penalty be used under his administration to deter corruption, as is done in other countries such as Iran.
“The punishment of the corrupt will serve as an example to others. It works perfectly in Singapore, and it will do the same in Kenya under my leadership,” he said.
