Azimio La Umoja Party Leader Raila Odinga has called his supporters to boycott services by Safaricom, KCB Bank and Radio Africa Group’s Star Newspaper, he accused them of being biased.
The leader who spoke on Tuesday at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Foundation in Nairobi called out the three companies for what he termed as being “facilitators of the Kenya Kwanza government.’
“We call for the boycott of Safaricom, Kenya Commercial Bank and Radio Africa Media particularly the Star Newspaper who have become the enablers and facilitators of this brutal regime,”Odinga said.
“These corporates have become the enemies of the people and are benefiting from the blood and tears of Kenyans.”
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, who had accompanied Odinga, clarified that the concerns against the Star was about unfairness, as he implored the media to be non-partisan in coverage.
“We respect the media and that is why Raila has expressed his gratitude for the continued coverage. But there are those who think that we don’t have rights. We have rights and also call for the media to take fair coverage. We are asking the star to be impartial,” he said.
Odinga echoed the coalition’s demands saying that President William has to ensure they are met, failure to which the outfit would hold rallies every Monday and Thursday beginning next week.
