Outgoing Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya’s facebook account has been hacked.
Through a post on his Twitter handle, Oparanya denounced a post on his facebook page urging the residents to vote Kakamega gubernatorial candidate Cleophas Malala.
“This is to NOTIFY the general public that my Facebook page has been hacked by agents of doom,” wrote the Governor on Twitter.
Ignore any post on my facebook page as we await the DCI to handle the matter and restore itGovernor Oparanya
The post that came in moments after 9.00 AM on Monday, August 29th has since sparked several reactions online.
“Hackers working day and night,” wrote @Pacific loch.
“Oparanya’s official page, I believe his kids were joking with the page for fun,” read Daudi Morintat’s post.
The ODM deputy party leader has however told the residents to avoid the page and that the matter is on the hands of DCI.
“Ignore any post on my facebook page as we await the DCI to handle the matter and restore it,” said Oparanya.
Voting kicked off on Monday morning in Kakamega, Mombasa and other six elective areas.
Fernandes Barasa of ODM will be battling for the 844,551 voters with UDA’s Cleophas Malala.
