'Pesa Mashinani' signature collection set to begin

12 September 2014, 17:28 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Signature collection for the 'Pesa Mashinani' signature collection romp will begin next week.

Governors have yet to kick off their signature collection process but they will do so starting next week where they will look to beat the 1 million signature threshold set by the constitution.

The campaign will begin Saturday 20 September and Sunday 21 September in Bomet and Kakamega Counties.

Bomet County is home to Council of Governors chairman Isaac Ruto who has been very vocal about the referendum.

It will then spread on to other parts of the country from then on, with Mombasa County in the pipeline.

Ruto said that the Council will still be looking to convince Governors that have given the process a wide birth, saying that political affiliation should not deter Kenyans from their rights.

" The process will be all inclusive and will seek to ensure all Kenyans get the opportunity to contribute to the process, he said Friday in Nairobi.

It is understood that in places like Mombasa, Governor Ali Hassan Joho, who heads the Council referendum team will seek to ensure that the process runs parallel with that of the CORD coalition's 'Okoa Kenya' campaign.

The Okoa Kenya version of the referendum is seeking 5 million signatures and has already moved past the 2 million signature mark as it seeks to change the constitution through popular vote.
