Wajackoyah, Wamae beef rages on

A group of youth has thrown their weight behind Roots party running mate Justina Wamae in her feud with presidential candidate George Wajackoyah.

Led by Raydon Munoko who identified himself as the party spokesperson, the youth has accused Wajackoyah of targeting Wamae for unspecified disciplinary action.

Wamae has been ordered to defend her conduct at disciplinary conduct heading slated for Friday.

“The disciplinary hearing is biased and we are not going to allow our leader to attend it,” said Munoko.

“The party leader has also been breaking the law by openly supporting other candidates and no action has been taken against him.”

Musician Simon Murunda, who identified himself as a member of the party, argues that summoning Wamae to a disciplinary hearing is an embarrassment.

“I want to ask Wajackoyah to stop embarrassing the party leader on social media. There are ways in which such matters can be resolved.”

Wajackoyah and Wamae contested finished third in the presidential elections behind eventual winner William Ruto and Raila Odinga who came second.

But the two have been involved in a war of words on social media with Wajackoyah accusing his running mate of a lack of loyalty despite reportedly buying her a car and offering accommodation during the campaign period.

Wamae has rubbished the claims, and instead accused his boss of secretly supporting Odinga.
