Roots Party running mate Justina Wamae reveals the cause of their fight with her Principal, and the beginning of fallout with party leader George Wajackoyah.


In an interview with the media, Wamae says she disagreed with her principal in the presidential race when Wajackoyah appeared to endorse Azimio la Umoja candidate Raila Odinga.

Justina Wamae explains his fallout with George Wajackoyah


Raila was one of the leading candidates in the presidential race alongside United Democratic Alliance’s William Ruto.


Wamae says their squabble, which has played out in the public, is, however, a matter of principle rather than personal.


“My principal did not like it that I gave my opinion when a clip of him appeared showing him endorsing one of our competitors. What I said is that as a party we had not had that discussion and indeed we hadn’t,” she said.


Wajackoyah recently shared a letter on social media through his handle, showing Justina is alleged to have received a car and accommodation from the party during the campaign period.


However, Justina has denied these allegations, claiming that she owned a business and had her car even before she joined Roots Party.


“Immediately I was picked as running mate, I did an interview where I revealed the business I do with my husband. I even showed my car in that interview. So, no. I have never received anything from the party except food I ate in my principal’s rural home when we visited,” she added.


When asked about cutting communication with Wajackoyah and indeed the Roots Party, Justina claims her principal blocked her first before she returned the did the same.


She says Wajackoyah is a man who enjoys imposing himself and when she asked him about claims he was supporting Raila, he took it personally and blocked her on social media and other communication channels.


“I indeed blocked him, but he blocked me first when I wanted to know the direction we were taking as a party and what we stood for. He did not like it that I was questioning the way things were going at the time,” she said.
Justina, however, says she is still at the party but Wajackoyah has the final say.


Justina responded to whether she will attend the disciplinary hearing as directed, saying she is still consulting and will make the decision before the actual day.


There have been notions that Justina was quick to congratulate President-elect William Ruto to find favor in his government.


Justina further added that she will apply for the Principal Secretary position like any other Kenyan whether in Ruto’s government if the Supreme Court upholds his win, or with Raila if he wins.

“I will concentrate on public service. If it is Ruto’s government or Raila’s government I will apply for the PS position because I am interested in public service, just like I applied in 2018 when I missed the MP seat in 2017,” she concluded.
