Given its role as one of a dozen grounds for Azimio's contesting the 2022 presidential results, the four way match analysis proved quite popular, creating a second peak of interest last week and driving unique visits for the month over 10,000.

Cyberhackers and Kenya 2022

The Ruto campaign hacking allegations, which became public on 15th February, were initially followed up in many media outlets around the world. It also notable that Odinga, the day before, made reference to "hiring ethical hackers" which may have been an attempt to pre-empt the story he knew was about to break: As the original Haaretz site is behind a partial paywall (I could read it initially, but now cannot), other links include: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/feb/15/political-aides-hacked-by-team-jorge-in-run-up-to-kenyan-election https://www.occrp.org/en/storykillers/hacks-bots-a ..read more

A Cabinet of Curiosities
Charles Hornsby Blog
by
1y ago
President William Ruto's first cabinet was announced after some delay on 27 September, and a curious collection it was. With 22 cabinet secretaries, plus the President, Deputy President and the Attorney General (ex-officio), there are 25 seats at that august table.  So, let's take a look at Ruto's choices. First, only four of 25 have held ministerial level office before (Ruto himself, Musalia Mudavadi, Davis Chirchir, Simon Chelugui). It is not a cabinet with much experience in governing. Mudavadi's elevation to Prime Cabinet Secretary gives the government gravitas, but its not obvious ..read more
