Hackers on Thursday infiltrated Kenya's world cancer day virtual meeting headed by Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

According to sources privy to the happenings at the event, the hackers hijacked the meeting a few minutes after it had just begun.

Only one person (Oncologist David Mukami) had addressed the meeting by the time the hackers took over.

After hijacking the event, the hackers started sharing obscene pictures and pornographic videos, forcing MoH officials to abruptly end the virtual event.


The Ministry of Health later restarted the meeting after obtaining a secure link.

The nature of the photos shared on the platform cannot allow us to publish them.

Such happenings have been common since mid-2020 when the virtual meetings became the order of the day following the increased spread of Covid-19 across the world.

Hackers took advantage of this, and have been infiltrating meetings; a concept known as ‘Zoom-bombing’.
