Jubilee 'converts' CORD governors from referendum push

13 October 2014, 14:02 William Korir

Nairobi - The Jubilee government has apparently converted CORD governors from the Okoa Kenya referendum push.

The leading coalition has been against the push for a referendum dubbed the Okoa Kenya referendum since it begun in July and has slowly looked for ways to disable the campaign.

It has included pushing for talks on increasing funds for devolution, a plan that has received backing from several Governors looking for a way out of the current impasse.

The Jubilee coalition has also been involved in efforts to form a team to kill off the referendum process and it is currently in the works, with reports stating that a team to deal with the matter will be unveiled this week.

And according to the source, there are CORD Governors and members who will be part of the team.

" There are CORD members. I am sure of that", the source that did not want to be named said.

" I am not sure about their general allegiance, but what I do know is that we all do not want a referendum and they too feel it is selfish of some of the CORD leaders to push for one, so they are siding with the government", the source added.

TNA chairman Johnstone Sakaja, when reached for comment Sunday, stopped short of confirming the names of those from the opposition who are for the process.

" There will be news at the end of the week but it is good news on that front", he said.

CORD has received increased opposition on the referendum, with a group of Coast leaders affiliated to the coalition already campaigning for the referendum to be dropped.
