“We are calling our brother Vimal shah to restrain his company from taking part with the Israeli in line with the decisions that were taken by the international court of justice,” Nyong’o said.

“I have noted with concern, a decision by one of the largest company to do business with Israeli a country that has faced international condemnation by international court of justice over its attacks on Palestinian’s where many people have been killed and others displaced.”

The governor urged the Kenyan company to refrain doing business with Israel saying that it may face similar sanctions that may be imposed to Israel, leading to many Kenyans to lose their jobs.

The war between the two countries has been escalating for a very long time, whereby Israel has refused to withdraw from Gaza rejecting the return of Palestines to their homes and failing to commit to allowing enough aid to the territory. Israel forces have had violence against the Palestine women and girls with multiple cases of sexual assault being reported

At least 29,092 Palestinians have been killed, 1.9 million displaced and 69,028 injured in the Israeli attacks on the Gaza strip since October 7 last year. Many leaders across the globe are calling for a two-state solution .
