Opposition leader Raila Odinga has signaled the return of a product boycott, saying his team would release a list of businesses Kenyans should not deal with as part of a mass protest.
While addressing his supporters in Migori County on Friday, Raila said some products and services in the country are being misused by the government.
“Next week, we will give them a notice. Our headquarters will release the press statement to you on which products should be boycotted,” he said.
“We will tell you how to deal with companies being used by this illegitimate regime. We will tell you what products not to buy, which media houses not to listen to and things like that.”

“Our teams will release a list of these items and companies. Then we will then have a big procession in Nairobi on March 20,” he said.
In 2017 Raila also asked his supporters to boycott products linked to the Kenyatta family or the government after losing the elections. He called on its supporters to shun services and products from telecom Safaricom, milk processor Brookside and fast goods manufacturer Bidco Kenya.
Although it was never established whether the boycott worked, it was lifted in 2018 after Raila made a handshake with retired president Uhuru Kenyatta.
