ODM blames Jubilee for referendum chaos

23 September 2014, 18:59 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has blamed the ongoing referendum violence on the Jubilee coalition and urged them to respect themselves.

This follows an incident Monday where anti-referendum hooligans attacked a meeting in Kapsabet, Nandi county injuring four people including Nandi Governor Cleophas Lagat’s chief of staff.

ODM, through secretary general Prof. Anyang Nyon'go termed the incidences, including the confiscation of referendum signature books in Nakuru as backward and barbaric.

" What happened in Nandi County yesterday is barbaric, shameful and intolerable. We condemn it unreservedly and call upon the URP leaders to desist from provoking and intimidating Governor Cleophas Lagat and his County Government the way they have been doing, he said in a statement.

Nyon'go added that it was every Kenyans' right to believe in whatever cause they want.

" The Governor just like every other Kenyan has all the rights under the constitution to express his views on matters he feels are beneficial not only to his county but also to the whole country, he added in his statement.

The party further condemned Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua for confiscating Okoa Kenya referendum signature registers in his County.

" We wish to remind Mr. Mbugua that this is a new era and that his style of administration, of intimidation and oppression, that he adopted while serving in the provincial administration is not welcome in the present dispensation.

He added that despite all efforts to stop the referendum, there would be no stopping the process.

" In the meantime let it be known by all and sundry that the referendum train left the station many weeks ago. It is better for those still in doubt to jump on board than engage in the wasteful effort of trying to derail the train from behind. That is simply an exercise in futility", he said.

Politicians allied to the Jubilee coalition have been threatened severally with severe action if they support the referendum, a move that has led to several leaders abandoning the chase.
