Police have confiscated a computer used to send details of the Technical University from a cybercafé in Ukunda in Kwale County. They say they are investigation possible links to terrorism as the computer was used to send an email containing details of the campus.

Security officials feel the content of the e-mail constitute a sectarian based threat on the campus deserving an investigation, reports the Standard. The e-mail suggested that Muslims were marginalised at the institution located in the Muslim dominated Kwale County.

Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) Vice Chancellor Prof Josphat Mwatela said owners of the cybercafé had reported seeing a hanging email on Saturday after a blackout with details on the campus which they considered as scary.

“An unknown individual had accessed the cybercafé to send an email which was not sent to the destination after a power outage,” said Prof Mwatela. “The unknown person is said to have left the cyber café in a hurry and when owners of the premises opened shop the following day, they stumbled on the email and alerted our administration in Ukunda.”

He said that some of the details in the email which they have since been shared with the police indicated that the sender had written about the TUM Ukunda Campus.

”We have taken all the necessary steps and liaised with the Kwale County Commissioner, Mr Evans Achoki and Police who have made an undertaking to beef up security in and around our satellite campus which has a student population of over 200,” he said.

Even as the University VC gave the assurance, students at the campus are living in fear following the e-mail. Students have vacated the hostels and sought accommodation from neighbours.
