I… communicated with him since 2009 and I believe that he is well qualfied candidate for International relationship which will very important aspect of Kenya, but he should pay more attention to grassroots campaign strategy in the Country.
Fortunately he appointed a potential young generation to support him as Campaign staffs and managers in Kenya. I hope that Kenyan recognizes,supports and elects him as their new President.
last but not least Datuk Sir Prof.Dr.George Luchiri Wajackoyah is IT literate presidential candidate. A luta continua!!
Rare are the men whose life stories are told for the world to hear. But it is those men who remain in silence and humility worth listening to. Here I present to you the opportunity to learn from a figure of justice, perseverance, and love for his people.
George Luchiri Wajackoyah, son of Tito Olilo Jakoya and Melenia Makokha, was born on October 24, 1959 at St Mary’s hospital in Jinja, Uganda. However, he grew up in Indangalasia village, West Wanga (Mumias), the same village his father Tito Olilo Jakoya was born and raised in. His mother, born in Butula, was daughter of Gabriel Ondenga, the village catechist and son of immigrant parents from Samia, the dominant Abakhulo clan.
After George’s parents divorced, he became an unwanted child; his mother could not take him with her as it was not customary at that time, and his father was only existent for seldom visits after he moved to Uganda and remarried soon after. George was left at the mercy of his grandparents, caretakers who put him through very difficult conditions. His grandparents were strict Catholics who did not take no for an answer when it came to prayers.
These prayers, they believed, were the only way to prevail over the rampart witchcraft that was prevalent at that time. At the age of sixteen, George stored away to Nairobi, almost five hundred miles from the village, in search of greener pastures. He joined small children in the streets and learned the trade of survival. It was very apparent that school was the only solution, but without a helper or guardian, that avenue seemed impossible and life became unbearable.
Things changed when the Hare Krishna rescued him. The Hare Krishna was a blessing at first; they took destitute children from the streets and gave them shelter, with the condition that the new recruits converted into Hare Krishna. “We would chant, eat, meditate and sleep for a few hours. Sleeping at 11 PM and waking up at 3 A.M became the routine” The cult was strict to the core but George adjusted quickly and found comfort in new people, he soon became ‘Krishna Balaram”.
This experience taught him that nothing comes without a prize. The mistreatment, strict adherence to the chanting doctrine, bickering among devotees soon became the new order. As usual, George observed the cult’s rules and followed them to the letter. Soon, Mr. Ram Lal Sharma, one of the followers of Hare Krishna and proprietor of City High school, developed an interest for George and offered him a chance to pursue his secondary education at his school. After he accomplished his O’levels, George joined St. Peter Mumia’s Boys High school where he sat for his A’levels. After his academic completion, George joined the police as a recruit constable and climbed the ladder to Inspectorate rank within a short time.
George had a dream to become President of Kenya while he was in Primary school and all throughout his early years. His grandfather always referred to him as a leader among his many grandchildren. And it was this characteristic and attribute that had allowed George to overcome challenging times, to say the least. George learned how to obey orders, respect elders and question later. This talent was rediscovered and put into practice when he campaigned to be the Chairman of Western Province debating Club Association.
It was a well deserved position after excelling as one of the top debate students helping the club gain much respect throughout the community. After years of what finally seemed to be a prevailing life, things turned sour for George when Dr. Robert Ouko, a Foreign affairs minister in Moi’s government, was murdered. As an Inspector, George was placed in charge of collecting intelligence on suspected killers. During the investigation, George’s inquisitiveness led to his arrest, subsequent detention and severe torture, He almost lost his eye sight from the beatings.
In the midst of all the misery, kind Americans planned for his release and flight from Kenya. George situated himself in the United Kingdom where he dedicated years of energy, time and thought, to the study of law. To fund his educational journey George held countless minimal jobs that required maximum effort; he resorted to digging graves and working as a security guard while his application for asylum was pending.
After he acquired several law degrees at, the Universities of Wolverhampton, London (SOAS), Warwick, and Westminster & UOL Birkberk, he opened an immigration law practice in London, where he led a formidable fight against Daniel Arap Moi, the former Kenyan dictator. George remained in the UK for almost two decades before he relocated to the United States.
In America he enrolled for an LLM program at the University of Baltimore to continue his zealous endeavors within this branch of knowledge. George is currently an adjunct professor of law at the American Heritage University of Southern California. He has lectured extensively on law and economics, human rights, constitutional and international law all over America.
A long life of conquering obstacles has given him the wisdom to share with others; he does this as a motivational speaker at seminars and business conferences. George has become a wholesome man of the world, an intercontinental teacher addressing members of parliament in the UK, British MPs, and equally, members of congress in America. He has been honored by the American Jewish society, where he has been a guest speaker of the Rabbi Eliaz Splitz at the Jewish Synagogue in Tustin, ambassadors of Oprah Winfrey, and sponsors of the Sierra Leon Society.
He has recently become the Vice President of a newly born company, My Network 1 Inc, in Rancho Cucamonga, applying his vast knowledge and practice. However, his priority, within all of these occupations, is the liberation of Kenyans from a long line of corrupted leaders and the mental bondage to the insecurities of a nation. George is running to be the next president of Kenya in 2012.
He is currently organizing the last touches of his campaign to be launched in Kenya next year, when he will return after many years of exile from his homeland. His vast exposure, experience, education and networks, he feels, is an added advantage to his quest for the presidency. However, he knows it is the intangible within him that will serve to be his most prominent instrument for restoring the Kenyan grounds. –(Collected and written by Jessica Mendoza, Press Secretary)
