Nairobi - Okoa Kenya referendum team has confirmed that it has hit 1 million signatures.
The referendum team head Paul Mwangi announced Wednesday that the referendum team has confirmed and verified the 1 million signatures it has as valid and is in the process of uploading them electronically.
Mwangi said that the process would take a few months before they are presented to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC.
" We are happy to announce that we have hit the required 1 million signatures," he said.
" At the moment we are looking to have them uploaded electronically and then from there we will move to the IEBC and then to the County Assembly level," he added.
Mwangi is confident that the process will be over by December this year.
" Hopefully it will be over by the end of the year as we do not want it to take place too soon to the 2017 General Elections, " he added.
The Okoa Kenya referendum movement primarily seeks to have the amount of funds allocated to Counties increased to 40% of public revenue as well as seek electoral reforms.
