Wajackoyah: The Church Shouldn’t Judge Us, Even Israel Never Abolished Hemp
Roots party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah called the church a double standard, saying some accept the proceeds of corruption as donations but never condemn it.
Speaking in an interview on Citizen TV, Wajackoyah said he has often been criticized by the church for “ruining a generation” but is a prayerful person who loves God.
“Let them find out why they accept money every Sunday that comes from evil and they don’t condemn it. May some of these pastors not be judgmental because God will judge them very, very harshly,” he said.
Adding: “We have no problem with the church. The church gangs up on me, telling me I’m ruining their children. Let me tell them to go back to the Bible and read it very well. They should find out why Israel, where God comes from, never abolished hemp.
Wajackoyah also outlined her plans to build more authentic churches where Christians will not be exploited by rogue preachers.
His running mate Justina Wamae, meanwhile, asked Kenyans to read some Bible verses that she says signify the importance of weed.
“Let them read Genesis 1:12, and Ezekiel 34 and 29; this is this herb that God gave to the Israelites when they were in slavery to give them food and status, this is this, so please read your Bible,” she said.
Genesis 1:12 – And the earth brought forth grass, and grass yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, the seed of which was in himself, after his kind. And God saw that it was good.  And the evening and the morning were the third day.
Ezekiel 34:29 – I will provide them with a land renowned for its crops, and they will no longer suffer famine in the land nor bear the contempt of the nations.
Asked about his plan to offset Kenya’s debt, Wajackoyah said decriminalizing marijuana would work magic and exporting it would generate enough revenue.
“A bag of marijuana, and, I’m not talking about those bags that you see people carrying – there are scientifically engineered bags for marijuana, it costs $3.2 million. If you cultivate 1,000 acres of land and harvest 1,000 sacks, then definitely…” Prof Wajackoyah said.
To further fill the gap, he added that he would introduce snake farming to extract venom for medicinal purposes and promote agribusiness.
“Many people are bitten by snakes in this country and have to wait for antedotes from abroad through pharmaceutical companies. We have too many snakes in this country. We will extract poison for making anti-venom and will donate the rest of the snake products for consumption to offset the debt,” Prof Wajackoyah said.
