The ANCYL’s website was hacked this week, showing a picture of Julius Malema saying: “HA HA HA I have a 16 Million Rand house and all of you don’t!”

The site was compromised last weekend and the picture and message were still up on the site as of Thursday. Duncan Harford, business development manager at Unwembi, the company which hosts the ANCYL’s website, said it was impossible to know the identity of the  hacker at this stage.

He said his company has had hacking attempts on a daily basis for about 15 years but very rarely are they successful. Harford did not wish to comment on whether the matter is under police investigation.

The ANCYL could not be reached for comment by the time Vuvuzela went to print.
