At the start of this week, it was reported that self proclaimed Boss Lady Zari had lost her social media platforms Facebook and Instagram had been hacked and how the hackers were posting trash and pornographic content on them. However, on Monday, the socialite arrested one Farid with charges of cyber crime on counter terrorism VIPPU.
Farid, also one of the organizers of the ‘Tugende Mukikadde’ annual event had been responsible for Zari’s social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
He is being detained at Kabalagala police station and awaits trial in court, that is if Zari doesn’t withdraw the charges.
After Zari’s accounts were hacked in, she asked Faridi to help her get them back and in an attempt to get these accounts which have a huge following, the hackers asked for US Dollars 2000, when Faridi tried to restore them back, the hackers increased the price to US Dollars 4000 and not only that, they also started posting pornographic photos.
Farid asked Zari for her password so that they could reset the account and prevent the hacker from accessing it. She even gave him Ug Shs 1 million to help him get all the help he needs to restore the accounts but to Farid’s and our surprise, on Wednesday, Zari had him arrested over a claim that he was behind all this because of the fact that he is the only one responsible for the accounts.
