Presidential aspirant George Luchiri Wajackoyah's outfit when he arrived at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi was his last statement to his fans and voters.

Wajackoyah has been communicating via his fashion ever since he announced his intention to run the country.

Despite not getting clearance from the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission on Monday, May 30, 2022, Wajackoyah still won the hearts of many with his eclectic fashion choices.

On the day, he was dressed in a red maroon durag coupled with a mud brown casual get up. Of course, he also wore his designer watch that cost millions of shillings to compliment his look.

The durag is his staple outfit and when he made his presidential intentions public, many young Kenyans noticed him.

According to fashion pundits, durags are being embraced as a symbol of divinity, a marker of identity and existence, and a tribute to a black tradition.

During the black pride movement of the 1960s and '70s, durags became a fashion statement. In the 1990s, durags were further popularized by rappers like Jay-Z, Nelly, and 50 Cent.

For Wajackoyah, the durag was a statement piece screaming "anti-establishment", "raging against the machine" and "rebellion at its highest", all of which the youth relate with.

His manifesto also had some radical changes to how things will be done under his government were he to be elected president.

 The youngins said he could just be the guy to legalize weed.

His dress code has impressed netizens who think he has set himself far apart from other candidates.

The lecturer was among the aspirants seeking clearance from IEBC returning officer Wafula Chebukati to run in the August 9 polls.

Wajackoyah is a lawyer. He holds an LLB (Hons) from the University of Wolverhampton (UK), CCL/LLM, School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London, LLM University of Warwick (UK), LLM University of Baltimore, and an Advanced Diploma in French from the University of Burundi.

Wajackoyah, 61, was born in Western.

His position on wanting to legalise weed should he succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta has caused a storm on social media, but he is determined to achieve his goal.

This is the second time Wajackoyah has announced his presidential bid. The first time was in 2013 when he announced that he would vie for President, but bolted out at the last minute without any explanation.

In a past interview with the Star, he narrated how he was abandoned by his parents after they divorced when he was 16 years old.

The law scholar found his way to Nairobi at a tender age and became a street boy and had to learn the art of survival.
