Roots party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah now says snake farming will also be his strategy for increasing government revenue and canceling rising debt.
Wajackoyah, who quickly became a sensation due to his promise to legalize marijuana, said snake breeding is a profitable venture his government will consider if elected in polls on August 9.
He disclosed that the snake venom that can be extracted from farmed snakes is worth a fortune that can drive the country’s economy along with the cultivation of weeds.
“We are introducing snake farming to the country so that we can extract snake venom for therapeutic purposes. Many people are being bitten by snakes in this country and you have to wait for doses from outside the country through pharmaceutical cooperation,” Wajackoyah said. in an interview with Citizen TV on Wednesday evening.
After extracting the snake venom, Wajackoyah said the snake will be exported as food to reptile-eating countries.
This, he said, will generate revenue that can offset the country’s huge debt.
“We have as many snake-eaters as the Chinese. One of the ways we will offset Chinese debts is to extract the venom from the snake and then give the Chinese the meat to eat and tell them to pay off the debt.”
The presidential candidate is one of four IEBC nodded to contend for top spot in the polls on August 9.
