CORD postpones Okoa Kenya launch in Garissa attack respect
08 April 2015, 13:08
Nairobi - The CORD coalition has postponed the Okoa Kenya referendum initiative as a mark of respect for the Garissa terror attack victims.
The initiative was to be relaunched this week but with the country mourning the Garissa dead, they have pushed it forward to 23 April.
" Please note that in respect of the Garissa attack victims and their families, the Okoa Kenya initiative relaunch will be done on 23 April 2015 and not as earlier planned," a communique from the CORD secretariat said Wednesday.
The country observed three days of national mourning in honour of the 148 killed in the massacre at the Garissa University College.
The Okoa Kenya Referendum is in its final stages and its tabling on the 23rd will see it move forward in a quest to have a national vote on several issues including insecurity and electoral reforms.
