Tuesday, May 12, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta seems to be a man a suicide mission going by what he has instructed the National Intelligence Service (NIS) to do to Kenyans who are always logged into Facebook and Twitter accounts.
According to sources, NIS under the leadership of Philip Kameru, has contracted a South African firm, Milkor, to provide the 360 degrees social media surveillance and cybersecurity solution to the agency.
Milkor has been given a two-year contract by the Kenyan Government to surveil activists, bloggers and political scientists who may influence the political space as President Uhuru fights to stop his deputy, William Ruto, from succeeding him.
The South African firm is least known for cybersecurity solutions but more for grenade launchers, drones and armoured vehicles.
Milkor’s two-year contract is the brainchild of Kameru who is known to be one of the most powerful individuals in Uhuru’s succession game.
Through the influence of Kameru, President Uhuru has increasingly appointed intelligence operatives to key civilian institutions like the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Immigration Department, National Police Service, Kenya Revenue Authority among others.
