A Computer teacher in Meru County, Mr. Tobias Mnangala Sifuna, has been arrested after he successfully hacked into four school portal accounts and managed to defraud parents over Ksh. 300,000.

The teacher who has been working at Iruru Girls High School in Meru County as an ICT teacher went into hiding after he realized he was being sought after.

The Tharaka Nithi Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said that parents from Chuka Boys High School reported to them that they made school fees payments to the school account details but the money was not reflected in the school accounts.

Mr. Sifuna (the hacker) had corrupted the portal and changed the payment account details to his paybill number.
