Deputy Presidential Debate – Ruth Mucheru and Justina Wamae go head to head

The Agano party presidential running mate Ruth Mucheru went head to head with the Roots party deputy presidential candidate Justina Wamae in the first half of the deputy presidential debate at the Catholic University of East Africa on Tuesday.

The debate was moderated by journalists Francis Gachuri of Citizen tv/Inooro tv and Zubeida Koome of KTN. The respective deputy presidential candidates were tasked to explain their different manifestos to the nation ahead of the August general election.

First question to them from the panel was what they will bring to the table should either of them become the next Kenya’s deputy president.

Ruth Mucheru of the Agano party and junior to David Mwaure said; “I’m coming in with my intelligence, corruption-free, a trustworthy person and the development agenda of the woman and youth.”

On her part, Justina Wamae of Roots party narrated; “The Deputy President has a role in giving their voice; my role is to amplify the voice of the youth’s and women’s voice.”

Asked about what is on top of the list of what the government will do should David Mwaure be elected the country’s 5th president, Agano Party Presidential running mate Ruth Mucheru Mutua said their government will return public funds stashed abroad.

“I am here to tell the change that Agano is bringing, the change that every Kenyan has been waiting for and to ensure whatever you desire, Agano gives you. Our policy is that we bring the money back.”

Justina Wamae defended Professor George Wajackoyah’s weed legalisation and modes of eradicating graft as the areas their government will focus on.

“It’s true that people get mental illnesses from consumption of Marijuana. But in the first place, many people have mental challenges because of unemployment and high cost of living,” Wamae said.

Among the punishments to civil servants and individuals found guilty of corruption will be death by hanging.

“Corruption in Kenya stems from scarcity mentality; we are going to purify this and the bad impacts of corruption and colonialism, before we begin our work” – Justina Wamae said.

Both of them are seeking to be elected in the particular position for the first time in their political careers.
