"We will show this government that we have the support of the people," he said.

Raila's previous calls for mass action have resulted in a clash with security forces, resulting in injuries. Raila has been meeting Kenyans in various parts of the country in recent days to discuss their demands.

On Sunday, the veteran opposition leader will hold a public baraza in Mombasa; signaling an increase in pressure.

Raila has an elaborate plan to deal with the Kenya Kwanza administration; according to Vihiga Senator Godfrey Osotsi.

"Mass action does not always mean taking to the streets. Other options include a product and tax boycott, as well as civil disobedience, in which the public is encouraged to refuse to obey the authorities," said Osotsi.

There are concerns that threats of mass action will deter both foreign and domestic investment.

President Ruto's illegitimacy may also undermine his standing in the international community.
