CORD referendum signature collection on track, says team

26 August 2014, 09:23 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition's referendum signature collection process is on track, the team leading the drive has said.

The signature collection exercise officially kicked off Saturday in various parts of the country, with the opposition coalition seeking 1 million signatures to help its push for a referendum.

And despite a few hitches here and there, the leader of the CORD referendum team Paul Mwangi says that everything is on track.

" So far we are on track and all is going well, he said in Nairobi.

" We have had a few hitches here and there but those are normal and we are confident everything is going to be fine, he added.

On whether there was a legal basis to shoot down the signature collection process due to what some of the Jubilee coalition members call a lack of proper information to those signing up, Mwangi said everything is water-tight.

" Yes, I have heard the complaints that there is no referendum question but that is covered in law, he said.

" The issue of providing a question only applies in a referendum conducted under section 49 of the Elections Act. This type of referendum is different from the one anticipated by our process under Section 257 of the Constitution, so we are fine. All that is just rumours meant to derail the process, he added.

CORD leader Raila Odinga has also said that there is no stopping the referendum process and has urged Kenyans to be ready to support the initiative.

" The process has reached the point where it cannot be stopped by anyone and anything. It is unstoppable.

" They are now in fear, they know change is on the way, which is why they are fighting it in whatever way they can, he said of efforts  by Jubilee members to shoot down the process.
