Opposition: Referendum push still on
31 December 2014, 15:51
Nakuru - Suna East MP Junet Mohammed has insisted that the push for a referendum by the CORD coalition is still on course.
Speaking in Nakuru town on Wednesday, Mohammed dismissed claims that the push had died and that it will gain more momentum next year.
He said that they were working on final touches on the plan before handing over the signatures collected to the electoral body.
“Some people are spreading rumuors that the opposition has abandoned the referendum push but we want to let them know that we are not giving up any sooner and they should be prepared for a real battle next year. The referendum train already left the station and it can only stop at the ballot box,” said Mohammed.
"Everything is in place and early next year we shall present the signatures to IEBC for verification and approval and then the real campaigns for the referendum will commence."

“The government should know that we are going to be very active in the remaining years before the general election and they should be prepared for a real fight, they will feel the real force and power of the opposition in this country,” he said.
