One of the Anonymous member told to HackRead , 

We have 1TB of data but at the moment, we have leaked just one portion of it. In few days you will receive full disclosure of the data – We the Anonymous will stand against corruption, child abuse, and child labour! The government of Kenya should have expected.

The hacktivist group has announced  the first attempt of Online Africa in January  to escalate computer attacks on governments in Rwanda, Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Sudan and South Sudan and Ethiopia. 

But on that time, Kenya government is not in the list.

Now come to the content of the documents-
  1. Firstly it contains the email discussion for the security preparations for the political trips, trade deals and a status report of conflict done between the Sudan and the South Sudan.
  2. Some documents contain the warning to the ministry staff as they are using phishing techniques for hacking attempts .

Finally, the conclusion was that “nothing is secret.”

The ICT Cabinet Secretary Joseph Mucheru told Reuters the attack was a phishing attack, as opposed to a hacking attack on the foreign affairs ministry's computer systems, and that no classified material had been accessed.

"What they did is they managed to send emails to people, and people clicked the links to change their credentials, and as a result they were able to access emails," he told Reuters by phone. "Our systems have remained safe and stable."

"What we have been able to identify is mostly on security clearance 'Open' as opposed to 'Restricted' or 'Top Secret'."

Mucheru said they were working to alert government employees on how to avoid being tricked by phishers and hackers.

There is a series incident for the Operation Africa hackers.
