Cyber Security Enthusiast

I found out about AfricaHackOn at a time when I was very interested in hacking. Africahackon is East Africa’s premier technical computer security collective which brings together the individual talents of the best and brightest security professionals in the region, through live presentations, engaging discussions and hands-on demonstrations.  Under AfricaHackOn, I’ve learned a thing or two in the Security business. I love Kali Linux and I enjoy doing CTF’s.
