Securing Kenya’s Electoral Integrity: Regulating Truth

In recent years, it has become relatively common for public entities and politicians in Kenya to disavow certain content shared through social media, claiming it to be false. This year alone, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has had to issue two statements dismissing election-related content as fabricated. In July 2021, it was reported through mainstream media that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had arrested an individual involved in online fraud. According to the report, the police suspected that the individual hacked into the IEBC’s database and accessed personal details relating to 61,617 registered voters. Shortly after the news broke, the IEBC claimed it was false. Even more recently, in September, the IEBC had to issue a public statement clarifying that a call for applications for jobs in their voter education programme was fake.

Information Warfare Watch No. 8

The spread of disinformation in Kenya is reaching new heights, as influencers smear the reputations of journalists, judges and activists in the country via paid social media campaigns. The attacks are coordinated through "WhatsApp groups to avoid detection," with their main purpose to villainize organizations and individuals who oppose entrenched political interests, an investigation by the Mozilla Foundation and Wired has found. "Members of civil society and journalists alike have increasingly come under disinformation attacks that seek to silence them, muddy their reputations, and stifle their reach," the magazine notes. Influencers are paid between $10 and $15 to participate in as many as three campaigns a day - making social media manipulation a tremendously lucrative enterprise in a country where annual per capita income stood at around $2,000 last year.

Ads on the address bar, the very bad idea of ​​Mozilla Firefox?

Unlike other browsers, Mozilla Firefox is not offered by a business or a non-profit organization. And in financial terms, the Mozilla Foundation sometimes has difficulties. Currently, Mozilla earns money through signed agreements with search engines. But the foundation is also looking for new ways to generate income to finance itself, for example by offering a competitor for VPNs available on the market.

The Possibilities for Innovation Within the JavaScript Ecosystem

In 1995, Netscape developed JavaScript and then gave it to the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) for language specification. With each version, JavaScript climbed the ladder and became increasingly robust. JavaScript's ecosystem is also growing, with more use cases leveraging its power. Developers can depend on robust frameworks like Sencha Ext JS, excellent editing tools like Froala, and robust data visualization tools like FusionCharts. For JavaScript, developers can use JavaScript for server-side and client-side applications.
