Okoa Kenya is dead, IEBC says

22 March 2016, 20:39 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Okoa Kenya referendum initiative is dead, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC has said.

The referendum initiative which has been fronted by opposition party CORD has died a natural death after the IEBC stated Tuesday that they failed to raise the required 1 million signatures required to pus through a popular referendum.

" The number of valid registered voters supporting OKOA Kenya popular initiative is 891,598. This falls short of the 1 million required by law," the IEBC said in a statement.

The revelation comes a day after CORD accused the IEBC and some senior government officials of deleting signatures put forward by the Coalition for the sake of the referendum.

CORD had last year given the IEBC 1.4 million signatures to verify for the sake of the referendum.

The Coalition quickly hit back over the IEBC claims.

" I knew by using @SakajaJohnson & @HonAdenDuale, @IEBCKenya was preparing Kenyans for the bad news," CORD communications boss Philip Etale said on Twitter.

" There have been efforts by Jubilee to stop the OK referendum. It was a people's initiative but Jubilee used their puppets to kill the idea," he added.
