Roots party presidential candidate, Professor George Wajackoyah has opened up about how he survived a python attack that could have claimed his life, from when he was a kid.

Wajackoyah revealed this while speaking at the Kenyatta International Conventional Centre on Thursday, during the colorful launch of his manifesto. 

Wajackoyah went ahead to lift his shirt in a bid to show the right side of his ribs where he still has marks from a python attack from when he was a young boy.

"All these (pointing at his ribs) are injuries inflicted by a python when I was a young boy, how it really squeezed me to swallow me thank God I am still alive." He said.

Adding, So I know the dangers of the snake but the good part of it, the good part of that snake I am talking about is that it is carrying something in it that it is very productive that will give us one billion US dollars per year."

Wajackoyah continues to maintain that his government will look for unconventional ways to make money, to make sure the normal mwananchi is wealthy and the country is debt free.

He has time and again reiterated that he will decriminalize and export marijuana to help the country make billions.

On Wednesday morning, he promised to give stipends to pregnant women once he gets elected.

Speaking on AM live show on NTV, Wajackoyah he insisted that should he get elected, pregnant women will automatically become state projects until they give birth.

He said, "Any mother who gets pregnant the day she gets pregnant and there's scientific evidence to show that she is pregnant, we shall start paying her a stipend because she will become now a state project right from the time she becomes pregnant."

Wajackoyah said he believes his Roots party government will have made enough money to give stipends, from the exportation of Marijuana.

"So these other rules and regulations will be there but we want to take care of a mother right from the time of inception of the child to the time she gives birth. We feel like we shall give them enough money because we shall have enough money from Marijuana."
