“Lately, I have been receiving unsolicited sms from these numbers inter alia..21026, 23050, 40720, Credit info BNT SMS, Senti, 60040…and others. It’s very obvious that Safaricom allows 3rd parties to have access to my number without my permission,” he wrote.

“Obviously a gross infringement on my right to privacy under Art 31 of the Constitution. I suspect this breach of privacy is rampant and Safaricom may be charging fees the entities it gives access to phone data.I think a class action is an appropriate step. What do u think people?”
