Pastor takes CORD referendum team to court
27 August 2014, 08:07
Nairobi - A Nairobi pastor has taken the CORD referendum team to the High Court over what he terms their violation of his constitutional rights.
The pastor, a Reverend John Mbugua from Embakasi, wants the referendum process stalled for several reasons.
First and foremost, he says that the process will not be seen through by CORD in the event they lose, as has been shown in previous times by the conduct of leader Raila Odinga.
Mbugua secondly says that it is wrong for CORD to criticize the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC whilst at they same time it is the body that will handle the referendum.
Finally, he says that the cost factor will be a burden to the taxpayer and wants them subjected to the parliamentary process which will be much more cost effective and less risky.
Justice Isaac Lenaola ordered Mbugua to serve all the respondents with the suit papers and set a hearing of the case for October 8, 2014.
