The digital government is not only faced with analogue crises. In a span of 24 hours since yesterday, the government has been waging a futile war on a hacker group to reclaim its defence account which was hacked yesterday and has again been hacked moments after it was restored.
The hacker, @Anon, has pulled on Kenya Defence Forces a highly successful stunt, putting doubts on Kenya’s ability to join the digital world with its poor digital security infrastructure.
Yesterday, KDF had claimed it had ‘liberated’ its account but the hacker has just told them ‘fuck you’.

Then reports indicated KDF had liberated the account, see:
And now, the site is down again, with a ‘fuck you’ tweet.
This deserves serious parliamentary investigations. Of course, expect no head to roll as no one will take responsibility in a government that is above checks.
