CHEBUKATI: IEBC is ready for a referendum if we receive questions

 

IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati now says that the commission is ready to conduct referendum, if the country decides to amend the Constitution.

Politicians, different stakeholders, clergymen and other authorities have in the recent past engaged in the push for referendum, especially after the March 9 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition supremo Raila Odinga.

Equally, there is another group of Kenyans who are opposed to the country holding a referendum, instead of concentrating on what they term as more sensical developmental projects that will help the country economically.

While politicians are taking sides whether we [Kenya] should conduct a referendum or not, Chebukati said that if IEBC receives referendum questions, then they will go ahead and process them.
