PHOTO: Why IEBC rejected Okoa Kenya referendum

22 March 2016, 21:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD"s Okoa Kenya referendum has failed, the IEBC has said. This is why.

The referendum failed to garner the required 1 million signatures as required by the Constitution to enable a public poll on several aspects of the Constitution including electoral changes.

The IEBC stated that the coalition gave in 1.4 million signatures but over 500,000 were not legitimate.

Below is a rundown of the reasons why.

" 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.
