In a Gazette Notice released on Monday, IIEC final results indicate that 6,092,593 Kenyans voted for the Proposed Constitution. This represents 66.9 per cent of the vostes cast. On the other hand, other 2,795,059 people, representing 30.6 per cent voted to reject the new law.

This move clears the way for the Friday official promulgation of the new Constitution and the birth of the Second Republic.

IIEC chairman Ahmed Isaack Hassan told The Standard Online that he has not been served with court papers of the case filed last week challenging the referendum.

The case, challenging the referendum results, was filed by Ms Mary Ariviza, an agent for ‘No’, and Mr Okotch Mondoh, at the Dispute Resolution Court last Friday.
