Kisii Governor cautions youth on growing cyber crime
Kisii Governor James Ongwae has urged the youth to stop misusing Information Technology but rather use it to become self-reliant.
Addressing members of the public at Gusii Stadium during the launch of Communication Authority of Kenya’s public forum on Cyber crime, Ongwae urged the youth to embrace IT as a source of income, considering the high unemployment rate.
“Cyber crime aims to satisfy selfish gains and especially political gains in this era of devolution,” said Ongwae.
The Communication Authority chairman, N’gendi Gituku, called upon parents to regulate content accessed on cell phones by their children.
“Current statistics prove that over 60% of Kenyan population are accessing internet, claiming to be vulnerable group like the minors who become victims as a result of misuse of technology,” said Gituku.
