No referendum signatures yet: Nyong'o
25 July 2014, 14:48
Nairobi - The CORD coalition is yet to start collecting signatures for the referendum push, ODM Secretary General Prof. Anyang Nyong'o has said.
Nyong'o was reacting to an allegation by Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku who said that the coalition was using underhand methods to collect signatures for the referendum.
He claimed that they were duping Kenyans that there was a free land initiative to collect signatures and ID numbers in parts of the Rift Valley.
But Nyong'o called the reports baseless and urged caution from the government in spreading malicious rumours.
" That story is baseless and I ask that the government refrain from spreading propaganda in such manner, he said.
" Look. We have not yet even got to the stage where we are collecting signatures. None has yet to be collected, he added.
Nyong'o insisted that the government had lost its way in its agenda and the Ole Lenku report just confirmed that theory.
" They should be thinking about improving security and not making baseless accusations that serve no purpose, he added.
On the referendum push, Nyong'o confirmed that things are going according to plan.
" We are going according to plan and the experts have started their job.
" It will come to pass. We are confident.
