Inside George Wajackoyah’s rural home

In the quiet, serene Indangalaisa village in Matungu constituency, Kakamega County, 2022 presidential candidate Prof George Wajackoyah enjoys communing with family and nature in a sleepy environment.

This is his rural home where his compound neighbours that of his late father’s homestead.

The story of Prof Wajackoyah’s home first became public knowledge in the run up to last year’s General Election, at a time when the then presidential candidate was racing against time to construct his house before the day of the polls.

Well, the house is now complete and Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Coalition activist Nuru Okanga has even shared snippets of the home.

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Mr Okanga, who is aspiring to become a Member of County Assembly in 2027, shared glimpses of himself touring the home.

At the entrance of Prof Wajackoyah’s homestead and to the right is a lengthy house which runs along the entire length of his perimeter wall. This structure contains more than six bedrooms which Mr Okanga said are used by Wajackoyah’s grandchildren whenever they are home.

In front of these bedrooms is the house of Wajackoyah’s mother, a nondescript structure that sits almost on a third of the compound. According to Mr Okanga, Prof Wajackoyah intends to renovate the house.

To the other side of his mother’s house is Wajackoyah’s house, a small bungalow with a tinted glass-encased verandah.  To the left of the bungalow is a parcel of land where, according to Mr Okanga, Prof Wajackoyah plans to put up a palatial mansion.

In front of Wajackoyah’s house is his late father’s grave which is marble encased and has solar lights dug all around it.

Behind the grandchildren’s bedrooms is his late father’s house. Mr Okanga did not enter the house but captured the compound infront of the house to reveal a large coop structure. It is here that Wajackoyah rears chicken, turkeys and geese.

Within Wajackoyah compound several young trees are growing and already promise great shade once they mature.
