Must read

The Criminal Investigations Department task team working together with Mukono Police have arrested a notorious hacker for allegedly breaking into mobile money systems and stealing millions of shillings from agents in different locations.

Kaporonyo Sabiiti, a 48-year-old, hacker from Namugongo in Wakiso is now in police custody and faces charges of cybercrime and theft according to Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga.

Enanga said that by the time Kaporonyo was arrested, he had made millions from his hacking business with victims registered in Mukono, Jinja, Misindye, Kiira division, Kinoni and Nagalama, among other areas.

“The suspect made millions of shillings from hacking into mobile money systems by agents in Mukono, Jinja, Misindye, Kiira division, Kinoni and Nagalama, among others. He had also allegedly customized his car registration number plates, believing his car movements would not be detected,” Mr Enanga stated in Monday’s security briefing.

Upon his arrest, Enanga said “An immediate search was conducted which led to the recovery of four Airtel lines and a hacking machine. His motor vehicle, a Toyota Harrier, registration number UBD 612P, white in colour was also impounded.”

“As the Joint Security Agencies, we continue to locate and fight these kinds of criminals who steal and hurt innocent business persons. We shall investigate, expose and disrupt them,” Enanga emphasized.
