The official Facebook page of Kabarak University, which has a significant following of over 43,000 people, has been hacked
On the night of May 4th, questionable posts started appearing on the university’s social media platform.
Concerned Kenyans online discovered that the private institution, which is owned by the family of the late former president Daniel Moi, was in trouble when the profile image was changed to that of an Asian man.
Upon seizing control of the page, the hacker began posting content that contradicted the institution’s Christian principles and values.
The hacker’s fondness for super bikes was evident in their choice of posts, which included videos in foreign languages.
One image that sparked laughter and discussion was that of the hacker holding a lit cigarette in their mouth.
The posts were described as diametrically opposed to the university’s founding beliefs of offering biblical education, and some Twitter users expressed surprise at the audacity of the hackers to share posts of alcohol bottles, scantily dressed women on motorcycles, and other inappropriate content on the page of a Christian university.
People hoped that the university would be able to regain control of the Facebook page as soon as possible.
The university has not yet issued a formal communication concerning the incident.
Kabarak university men Conference
Early March this year, male students at Kabarak University were treated to an event that pushed them toward more progressive definitions of masculinity.
These contemporary paradigms stress the importance of developing one’s capacity for empathy and emotional intelligence as well as working together to solve problems.
The goal of the “Kabarak Men’s Talk” was to educate the young men of Kabarak on the changing power structures of modern society.
Assistant Dean of Students Dishon Mngonda said that the purpose of the all-male event was to teach participants valuable life and work skills that they could apply immediately.
In addition, students were urged to accept the fluidity of modern gender norms.
