China has denied involvement in cyber-attack claims against the Kenyan government.
The economic giant has termed the claims as ‘false and groundless’ following a report by Reuters that said China was hacking key ministries and state institutions with the aim of gaining information on debt owed to Beijing by Kenya.
“It is a highly sensitive political issue to pin the label of cyber-attack to a certain government without solid evidence,” read a statement from the Chinese Embassy spokesperson.
“The relevant media should adopt a professional and responsible attitude and underscore the importance to have enough evidence when conducting reports, rather than make groundless assumptions and accusations.”

“Guided by the principles of sincerity, real results, amity and good faith and with a commitment to the greater good and shared interests, China endeavours to strengthen solidarity and cooperation with Kenya and work together with Kenya to strive for new progress in the China-Kenya comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership,” further read the statement.
