Speaking during his submissions, Otiende said anyone is allowed to support the initiative and that is what the president did.

"The one thing the court does not do in their 300-page judgement is fail to ask who are the promoters. BBI is an initiative promoted by Waweru and Junet. They engaged with the IEBC and collected the signatures," he said.
