Nasa leader Raila Odinga on Wednesday called on his supporters to boycott goods of those affiliated to the ruling Jubilee coalition.

He said the economic boycott call is the product of the push to hold the repeat presidential election despite concerns from the Opposition that the IEBC failed to institute reforms for a free and fair vote.

The presidential candidate, who withdrew from the repeat poll, asked his charged supporters to stay away from polling stations Thursday.

Mr Odinga reiterated the boycott threat saying there are many ways to push for reforms as the prolonged electioneering and tension over the repeat poll continues to slow down businesses, setting the stage for job cuts.
