Not network failure but deliberate fiber cuts that lead to network failure. Those cables did not cut themselves.
So after Safaricom was busted the other day over mpesa fraud (https://www.kahawatungu.com/2018/07/21/jkuat-student-safaricom-staffer-arrested-sim-swap-scam/) and they embarked on investigations leading to the arrest of one of their employees.
But come to think of it, one employee can’t manage the nationwide simswap-mpesa fraud thing. There must be a number of insiders. The other day Safaricom fired mpesa staff over the same issue (https://www.nation.co.ke/business/Safaricom-sacks-52--fraud-crackdown-/996-4125836-s3as1az/index.html)
So how do these guys or the remaining ones fight back to distract investigations? Sabotage the network and direct the attention elsewhere. My thoughts though.
