Okoa Kenya signature collection hits 1.4 million

02 September 2014, 15:50 William Korir

Nairobi - The Okoa Kenya referendum campaign has hit 1.4 million signatures.

The secretariat announced in Nairobi Tuesday that they had hit the mark, which is way above what is prescribed by the constitution to force a referendum.

According to the team, they are seeking 5 million signatures for the plebiscite.

1,800 books, which were sent out for the collection, have been sent out already and returned fully signed, with another 2,000 set to be released soon.

The first 1,800 were sent out to Nairobi, Western Kenya and Rift Valley.

The extra 2,000 books will be sent out to Coast, Central and North Eastern regions in the coming weeks.

The collection process has been hit by court cases arguing against its eligibility, but thus far the process is yet to be disturbed officially.

Kieni MP Kanini Kega says in his petition that the signature collection process is flawed and that it must be stopped.

He insists that there is no referendum question accompanying the signature collection and also insists that there is need to educate Kenyans on the matter.

The case is set to be heard starting Tuesday next week.
