DA, ANC blamed for website hacking

Yesterday criminals hacked into Cape Party computer systems, deleted their files, and replaced images on their website with a red-eyed “devil creature” telling the Cape Party and their members to f*** off.

The Cape Party, who are calling for the independence of the Cape, also came under attack earlier this year during National elections when a similar incident was perpetrated against them.

Jack Miller, leader of the party, blamed opposition parties for the attacks saying that only a well funded organisation such as the DA and ANC could complete such an operation. Miller responded to the recent attacks saying, “Have these politicians got nothing better to do than play computer games? In fact, this is to be expected. If you look at the state of our country you wonder if the government does anything else.” Miller has lodged a complaint with the Independent Electoral Commission.

Following this second attack against the Cape Party the South African Police have opened a case of intimidation, defamation and fraud. The website is still down and being investigated but promises to return to working order within the next 24 hours.
