Businessmen threaten to boycott British products

04 July 2014, 11:36 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A group of businessmen drawn from Nyeri and Laikipia counties on Friday threatened to mobilise the public to boycott buying products from Britain.

The Regional Business Community Group, led by Chairman Munyiri Wamahiu, said it was disturbing that the British government banned Kenyan products like miraa, which was a source of income for hundreds of farmers.

They however urged the British government to withdraw the ban on exportation of miraa that was effected last month.

“Miraa is not only grown in Meru region but also in some parts of Nyeri and Laikipia. We were also affected by the ban,” said Wamahiu.

He said if the ban was not lifted, Kenyans could as well be forced to boycott using products like cigarettes since they are also a health hazard and most of them are made by a firm associated with Britain.

The chairman however asked the Kenyan government to intervene and see if the ban can be lifted soon to save farmers from incurring loses.

The ban on exportation of the commodity took effect on June 24 despite a plea by various leaders that the British Authority extend the ban deadline to allow the farmers to look for alternative markets.
