Fraud at KENIC?

@Barrack,

Are you contracted as an attorney for KeNIC? The tone of your response
seems to castigate some listers whereas this is a forum where people are
free to air their opinions freely, unless that changed without my knowledge.
Secondly, I think you are wrong to come to the defense of KeNIC. They are
capable of doing that themselves.
On personal data being passed around, I think it’s better to be open about
what someone alleges. If anyone feels offended, they can seek legal redress.

Just my rebuke of your stand 🙂

Now that that is off my chest, I think this statement by KeNIC has been
concocted. It was done on 24th but could not be released until 26th. It
comes out strongly in defense of their staff as not being capable of
impropriety. That is subject to interrogation by listers who believe that
there has been some impropriety in the process.

I am still reading the statement, and need to read the previous one again,
alongside the one that contains the allegations.

I have seen this in the statement released today: “S*everal domains
attracted higher amounts with NI.KE attracting up to KES
1,000,0000,038.*” – I am wondering whether this is a typo or some misplaced
comma or zero….
