Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah said his administration will remove the boda boda sector if he wins the August election.

Wajackoyah said that while he was on a campaign trail in Western Kenya where he told residents of Busia that he will transform the boda boda sector by legalising marijuana.

The controversial presidential candidate opined that by legalising marijuana, he would create a lot of capital and therefore boda boda riders would not sit around hoping to get customers like in their current jobs, which offer the minimal potential for growth.

Wajackoyah said the boda boda riders will be instrumental in the cultivation of marijuana, which will generate millions for Kenya.

"They will be at the forefront cultivating and exporting bhang to generate millions of money for the country," Wajackoyah said.

He also predicted that the boda boda sector will collapse under his tenure since most Kenyans will be millionaires and will not need boda boda for transport.

“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,” Wajackoyah said.

Wajackoyah has been a vocal crusader for the legalisation of marijuana for medicinal and economic purposes and believes the country can pay the Chinese debt by trading in the now illegal substance.
