Okoa Kenya returns

23 April 2015, 12:00 William Korir

Nairobi - The Okoa Kenya referendum campaign has returned.

The referendum campaign which is being fronted by the opposition Coalition for Reform and Democracy CORD has returned as it seeks to complete the final stages which will lead to a national vote over several contentious issues.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga and his co-principals, Mr Kalonzo Musyoka and Mr Moses Wetang’ula, are currently launching the ‘Okoa Kenya’ Bill at Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.

CORD has been working on the draft bill to be presented to members of the public in the last four months.

Led by committee of experts chairman Lawyer Paul Mwangi, the bill will be launched to push for a change in several facets of the country and work to build better legislation in electoral reforms amongst others.

Leaders from both sides of the political divide had been invited but a close check on the Bomas grounds saw mostly members of the opposition as well as activists and members of the civil society in attendance.

The mission of the referendum according to CORD is " to unite Kenyans and get rid of offensive clauses in the Constitution."

The Jubilee coalition has strongly been against the referendum, stating that it will be expensive and that most of the things CORD want can be dealt with in the National Assembly.

The Okoa Kenya team has already collected 1 million signatures to help push for a popular public poll as is required by the constitution.
