• High Court judges on May 17 declared the process illegal and unconstitutional.
• Lawyer Otiende Amollo claimed that BBI promoters were Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and BBI secretariat co-chair Dennis Waweru.
The case seeking to challenge the High Court’s ruling on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) continued on Wednesday at the Court of Appeal.
The seven-judge bench led by Court of Appeal president Daniel Musinga begun hearing the cases on Tuesday.
High Court judges on May 17 declared the process illegal and unconstitutional and censured the electoral agency for plans to hold a referendum without proper public participation.
The Court of Appeal set the hearing of BBI case for June 29 to July 2.
The appeal team continued to submit their case, where lawyer Otiende Amollo claimed that BBI promoters were Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and BBI secretariat co-chair Dennis Waweru.
"... the promoters were Waweru and Junet but the court insists that it was President Uhuru Kenyatta," he said.
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.
