MCA's fully support referendum push says Raila

30 October 2014, 08:02 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says that Members of County Assemblies MCA's from Nairobi fully support the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign.

Raila spoke Wednesday evening after holding a three hour meeting with CORD MCA's from the city, in an attempt to woo support for the referendum campaign.

He insisted that the MCA's are behind the push for the referendum, stating that they have already agreed to work with the party after a while on the sidelines.

He said that from next week, there will be campaigns all over the city clamouring for the referendum.

" We have spoken and agreed on the referendum push and campaigns in the city will start next week and go on for one month," he said after the meeting at a Nairobi hotel.

The 64 MCA's affiliated to CORD had in previous times not taken a stand on the matter, with Governor Evans Kidero also on the sidelines of the campaign.

Raila though, insists that all CORD affiliated members will from now on support the referendum push.

" This is a critical moment for the referendum campaign and we need all the support we will get and especially from our members," he added.

The Okoa Kenya campaign has been doing dismally of late, only garnering 38% support as reported by pollsters in recent months.

Raila though is not too worried about the polls, saying that he expects momentum to pick up once key issues are resolved.

" We are close to completing the verification of signatures and from then on we will send them to the IEBC together with the draft bill. Once those are completed, we are sure things will kick on," he added.

CORD claim that they have collected the 1 million signatures required by law to front a popular referendum.
