The hacker who gained unauthorized access to Kabarak University’s Facebook page has apologized for his actions, demands for Ksh 70k and further dares the university to take back control of the page.

“Hello everyone, I just want to clarify about this account that was hacked, to be honest I was just having fun so don’t take the posts I publish seriously, once again I’m sorry” He said.
