BBI: Eric Gumbo Explains Meaning Of Commas, Pronouns Phrases In Constitution As Missed By High Court

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report appeal case has continued today for the second day, as the appealants made submitted their further evidences that the High Court Judges missed on several points of interpreting the consititution in reference to that case.

Speaking while making submission of an appeal by the Independent Electrol and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Lawyer Eric Gumbo took his time to explain how the High Court Judges missed on the point of meaning of commas and pronouns phrases in the constitution.

The Senior Council argued that the Superior Court missed on interpretation of the meaning of the comma and pronoun under article 257-4 of the Constitution. The article says that the promoters of the initiative to amend the constitution, must present their bill to the Independent Electrol and Boundaries Commission IEBC, which will verify whether it meets the threshold of being a popular initiative.

Gumbo argued that the comma which comes before the pronoun which gives a meaning that the pronoun refers to the Independent Electrol and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), hence it can be replaced with it to bring out a clear meaning that it is the one given the mandate by the consititution, to verify whether an initiative is a popular initiative as it did on BBI report.
