Last week, CORD leader, Raila Odinga, said that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) could not be trusted to handle the 2017 General Elections over fears that it was in bed with the Government.
Raila, who was addressing CORD supporters at Anniversary Towers after commissioners skipped a crucial meeting with the opposition, said IEBC was planning to reject the Okoa Kenya initiative because the commission has become a gate keeper of the Executive.
And true to Raila’s word, on Tuesday, IEBC rejected the Okoa Kenya initiative on flimsy grounds.
While rejecting Raila’s driven initiative, IEBC Chairman, Isaac Hassan, said most of the Okoa Kenya signatures were fake and that is why the IEBC rejected the plebiscite.
In a statement to the press, Hassan declared that only 891, 598 signatures out of the 1.6 million submitted by CORD had been found to be authentic.
Following this debacle, sources within CORD said that Raila, who is on an official visit to South Africa, has vowed to teach Jubilee a lesson for rejecting his Okoa Kenya initiative.
The source also said that the former Premier, who is an enigma in Kenya’s politics, will also order his troops to march to State House to warn President Uhuru Kenyatta against interfering with the Okoa Kenya initiative and against rigging the 2017 election.
