Deputy President William Ruto and his allies have began to boycott top new alerts in the country terming them as propaganda.
A day ago the second in command unsubscribed from premium sms services 21411 hosted by Capital FM and cost Ksh 5 per sms.
Others to follow suit were Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Elgeyo Marakwet Kipchumba Murkomen and Belgut MP Nelson Koech.

According to Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, the SM alerts are vicious propaganda tools against the hustler and their quest for inclusion.
“There’s no difference between SMS news alert 411 and Joseph Goebbels’ notepad. It is the state’s most vicious propaganda tool against hustler’s and their quest for inclusion. UNSUBSCRIBE is the only option left.” Said Murkomen.
The news comes barely a day after Capital FM shared a video of Isiolo youth heckling Deputy President William Ruto and announce their stand for the BBI.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also called out his Deputy for double speaking as he dared him to resign and let other continue with the work.
Speaking from Uthiru, the President noted how the Deputy President was talking ill of a failed government and at the same time praising the development projects done by the same government.
