Raila Forced to Send Urgent Notice over Safaricom

NASA leader Raila Odinga has been forced to issue an urgent notice...

The advert published by a local daily, called on NASA supporters to boycott local companies that had supposedly undermined Odinga’s election.

Kenyan telecommunications giant Safaricom was the main victim of the false ad as it was specifically listed as allegedly conspiring to rig Odinga out of the race.

“We direct immediate boycott of Safaricom and their products across Kenya as a measure of the people’s voice against the on-going efforts between Safaricom Limited and the Jubilee Party to steal yet another election,” the ad read in part.

However, the ODM presidential candidate defended the company stating the Opposition coalition had not issued such a statement.

“NASA Coalition has not placed any such advertisement in any publication,” Odinga tweeted.

The former Prime Minister has in the past threatened to lead a boycott against certain companies that were allegedly involved in the conspiracy to deny him the August 8 presidential win.
