So, more than a billion Yahoo user accounts got hacked through December 2016. This time round bigger than the previous one. Hackers are getting bolder and bolder with some of being state influenced. Like the now confirmed meddling by Russia in the November 2016 US election. As Kenyans near the August 2017 election, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission the body mandated to carry our elections in Kenya surely expect a process without outside influence. Other countries in Africa with upcoming elections in 2017 are Algeria, Angola, Chad, Congo (Brazaville), Gambia, Liberia, Rwanda (Presidential), Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somaliland and Tunisia.
