“As a firm believer in responsible use of social media and aware of the dangers cyber criminals can cause, I take this early opportunity to warn my friends and the public in general that my Facebook account, which has 5000 friends and more than 20000 followers, is currently in the hands of hackers and any messages that may be sent on the platform are not mine,” said Mutua.
