Roots Party presidential candidate Prof. George Wajackoyah says he wears a durag as a sign of protest against corruption in Kenya.

Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV, he said, "I am a former street boy, a grave digger 

I have children and a wife who live in the US, my kids live in the US. This durag is a protest against corruption.

When African Americans were taken in as slaves. A lot of them died on the ship. They were told to throw the dead people into the water."

"Before doing so they would tear the clothes of the dead and tie them as a durag on the head. The number of durags showed the number of people who had died.

This is me and I won't get rid of the durag. This is my dress mode. I have suits but I am more comfortable in casual clothing."

Wajackoyah has been vocally advocating for - the legalization and commercialization of Bhang or Marijuana. 

"There are a lot of good things that come out of this plant. I have never smoked but I intend to smoke that day when I am elected as President. As soon as I am sworn in I will smoke the first joint," he said in a past interview on KTN. 

The lawyer says among the things Kenyans will enjoy working for four days a week.
