CORD to start collecting referendum signatures next week

08 August 2014, 12:19 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition will start collecting signatures for the planned referendum next week, the team in-charge of the process has announced.

Paul Mwangi, the leader of the team of experts tasked with stringing together the referendum process, said Friday morning that they would start their country-wide collections of signatures Wednesday August 13, 2014.

He also dismissed reports that the process had already begun and said it would be done in free-will and not using underhand tactics as some have suggested.

" The process will begin Wednesday and the details of where and how members of the public can contribute will be released later on today, he said Friday morning.

Named the Okoa Kenya initiative, the referendum process seeks change in a number of sectors, which include devolution, land reforms, electoral reforms, inclusivity- equality, corruption and insecurity.

CORD leaders have also insisted that the process does not seek division of Kenyans but to free the country from the current problems.

" The process will seek change in the country's blueprint and not division. That is not the aim. We want Kenyans to be happy with who they are and where they live. We wan them to feel free again, coalition leader Raila Odinga said last week.

The referendum process is also set to get a shot in the arm with the revelation of a similar plan by Governors also Friday.

They are seeking increase in funds for devolution, a process that CORD are also seeking absolute change in.

They have however denied that their process is being done in conjunction with the CORD process.

" We are not using the same agenda as CORD and we will show that when we unveil our plan, Council of Governors Chair Isaac Ruto said.
