Roots Party presidential candidate Wajackoyah has released a statement rubbishing claims that the party leader had endorsed opponent Raila Odinga's presidential bid.

In a statement by the party's spokesperson Jaymo Ule Msee, he said their party leader, Wajackoyah is still on the ballot and their supporters should ignore the rumours.

"Our attention has been drawn to a viral video dip showing our Presidential Candidate Prof George Wajackoyah on the campaign trail addressing his supporters at an entertainment joint.

Whereas our party leader addressed his supporters accorded the other three presidential candidates some level of respect," the statement read.

It further read, "We would like categorically state that we have a presidential candidate who is on the ballot and will win this Election.

We have not and will not endorse any other candidate. The notion that Prof Wajackoyah has endorsed Raila Odinga is a hopeless imagination and wishful thinking that only exists in the minds of biased media.

We understand the various political camps have panicked over their expectations vs reality in this elections."

Jaymo assured fans and supporters that Wajackoyah is still on the ballot.

The statement comes after a video emerged of Roots Party leader Wajackoyah praising his opponent, Azimio party leader Raila Odinga went viral.

While addressing his supporters in a nightclub, Wajackoyah expressed his deep admiration for Raila Odinga.

He said he supports Raila, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader since he is among the politicians who pushed for the second liberation of Kenya.

"Because of that, man (Raila). The man whose tears come out every day because of what happened to him in jail, including myself. I am here to join liberators. And the person I look at, the person who makes me stand here is none other than Raila Odinga," he said.

A few days ago, Wajackoyah also weighed in on the ongoing war of words between Deputy President William Ruto and his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Taking to social media, the controversial presidential candidate criticized the Head of State accusing him of mistreating Ruto for being his opponent.
