IEBC said that CORD failed to achieve the one million registered voter support threshold as only 891,598 supported the initiative.
IEBC said: “The analysis of the data presented by the OKOA Kenya popular initiative has shown that that the number of valid registered voters supporting the initiative is 891,598. This falls short of the one million registered voters required by law.”
Okoa Kenya is the only thing trending right now, and sooner or later Robert Alai would add his voice. It was assumed that since he has aligned himself with ODM and is even rumoured to be eyeing a Nairobi parliamentary seat on an ODM ticket, he would join the attack on IEBC.
However, Alai directed his sword to Cord.
Writing on Facebook yesterday, he said that they can’t solely blame IEBC for the bungled Okoa Kenya signature drive, but should look in-house. He accused two people; Engineer Carey Orege and George Mboya of sabotaging the exercise.
Here’s that Facebook post.
