Wajackoyah has also promised to improve the welfare of police officers.

“There are flowers planted where you are standing, for beautification purposes. That is a place that can yield regulated bhang. Even the things we have on the Nairobi expressway, flowers that have died. Why do we need all that yet people are dying? All that will be bhang.”

The law professor has also promised Kenyans they will rest for three days each week, a day more than is currently the case.

“Working days would be between Monday and Thursday. Friday is a Muslim prayer day and will not be counted as a workday. Saturday and Sunday would also form part of non-working days.”

Kenya heads to the polls on August 9, 2022. Raila Odinga, William Ruto and Mwaure Wahiga are the other presidential candidates cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision (IEBC).
