Kenya’s opposition political party, National Super Alliance (Nasa) has announced that its members are boycotting products from companies it believes to be allies of the ruling Jubilee party.

The announcement was made on Friday by the Parliamentary wing of the National Resistance Movement of the Nasa.

The Nasa MPs listed some of the companies to include Safaricom, Bidco and Brookside. They want their supporters to avoid products and services of these companies.

“We will resist the products of these companies because they are beneficiaries of the regime that killed people in this country,” one of the MPs Junet Mohamed is quoted by the Daily Nation to have said.

Nasa supporters now have five days to find alternative products of the companies targeted by the boycott.

“These companies have denied Kenyans their right to elect their leaders in a democratic process,” Mohamed said.

Nasa members last week boycotted the repeat poll which was won by the incumbent President Kenyatta by 98 percent.

The opposition leader in Kenya, Raila Odinga last week described the repeat presidential election as a “fraud” and vowed not to recognize the declared winner, Uhuru Kenyatta and his government.

Odinga has said that his party the National Super Alliance (Nasa) would push for the formation of a People Assembly to govern the country until fresh election is held to elect what he called legitimate executive.
