According to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Okoa Kenya only managed to marshal 891,598 valid registered voters out of the 1 million required by law.
A statement issued by IEBC chairman Isaac Hassan read in art:
"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.
"Therefore, the Commission wishes to declare that the OKOA Kenya proposal to amend the constitution initiative has collapsed by operation of the law,"
Cord co-principal Moses Wetangula faulted the IEBC for working with the Jubilee administration to frustrate the referendum call.
He was quoted by a section of the media as saying:
"It confirms the conspiracy between IEBC and Jubilee leaders. If that is not the case then how did Jubilee leaders know about this outcome days before the commission announced?,"
He went on to say that Cord will use both judicial and extrajudicial to push through the referendum.
