CORD nears 1 million mark in signature collection

31 August 2014, 10:10 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition has collected nearly 1 million signatures in its Okoa Kenya referendum initiative.

The coalition, according to leader Raila Odinga, has enough power to herald change in the country and urged more and more Kenyans to support the initiative.

" We are getting there. We have passed the 800,000 mark. We are gaining in momentum, he said to loud cheers.

Speaking in Eastleigh Nairobi Saturday evening, Raila said that there was no stopping the referendum and said that there was evidence of grand corruption within the Jubilee coalition, saying that Kenyans are owed an explanation on the monies being stolen as well as skewed job appointments.

" Look closely, all the best jobs have been handed out to one or two communities. They are picking up everything, he said.

Raila also said that it was imperative that 10% of jobs go out to marginalized communities.

" The marginalized communities must be given a share of national jobs. They deserve to be given the jobs, referring to the Somali community who he was addressing in Eastleigh.

He also called in the government on grand corruption.

" We have evidence that the KES 15 billion missing from the office of the president was stolen to help in buying the 2013 general election, he said.

" There are investigations ongoing, these things will slowly come to light, he added.

The Okoa Kenya referendum initiative seeks to enact change through public initiative and the former Prime Minister said that he was confident Kenyans were for it and not against it.

" We have received support from Kenyans of all walks of life. They are happy to support us and we are happy to do this for them.
