Roots Party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah on Sunday, June 12, appointed comedian Wilson Muirani, popularly known as Jaymo Ule Msee, as his campaign spokesperson.
According to a statement obtained by the media, Muirani will serve as the candidate’s official spokesperson and will coordinate the party’s media engagements.
Muirani has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Economics from the University of Nairobi, as well as digital marketing and strategy experience.
Aside from his work as a content creator, the comedian has also worked as a radio host with Homeboyz and was a member of the Jubilee Party’s 2017 election campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“His experience and credentials are an asset to Roots Party as he is aligned to the ideology of the party and Kenya at large, and fully supports the presidential candidate together with the running mate,” the statement from the presidential candidate read in part.
Muirani’s appointment came a day after he held a meeting at Wajackoyah’s office. The comedian accepted the position, promising to live up to the party’s vision of winning the General Election on August 9th.
“I truly thank Prof Wajackoyah, our running mate and our party officials for having faith in me to serve in our party to ensure we get a resounding victory on August 9. It is time for our generation to make the right choices,” he stated.
