Rwanda, through the Rwandan High Comission in Nairobi has denied involvement in recruitment of hackers or security experts in Kenya.

This is in response to a story appearing on CIO East Africa, "Rwanda claimed to be recruiting hackers" which had claims that the country had approached several hackers and already shortlisted a security firm.

"We would like to categorically state that Rwanda has never send any security experts to look for IT companies to bring down some of the mentioned sites," said an embassy official. "The intent of the information was most likely to tarnish the image of the country," added the official.
