Chitungwiza Man Hacks Liquid And Steals 1000GB Of Data

Crimes and Courts Technology

In a jaw-dropping tale of digital deceit, 27-year-old Nyadziso Chiyangwa was arrested for brazenly stealing customers’ data bundles right from under Liquid’s nose.

Chiyangwa is facing charges of breaching the Data Protection Act. He recently stood before Harare Magistrate Dennis Mangosi and got a US$400 bail reprieve.


Chiyangwa allegedly orchestrated an operation that siphoned off 1070 gigabytes of data bundles, valued at a significant US$2,942. He sucked the data from a staggering 117 Liquid account holders from 18 May to 28 August.


The cunny Chitungwiza man then sold the stolen data to other Liquid customers. Chiyangwa accessed the company through another customer’s login details, The Herald reported. The geek even went so far as to change the customer’s phone number on his portal, ensuring all notifications were rerouted to him.

The court State slapped Chiyangwa with a second charge as he is accused of secretly opening ‘Fibre on the Go’ accounts on existing unlimited service accounts. These extensions grant users access to public WIFI hotspots. The computer whiz then illegally connected 82 users to the system. And he allegedly collected a cool US$10 monthly from these unsuspecting clients.

Zimbos expressed bewilderment at Chiyangwa who hacked Liquid and took away data bundles.


“Chibaba icho.”


“This guy is talented. If he was abroad, someone would get him and train him.”


“He exposed their vulnerability. I’m not sure if that isn’t a bad thing. They should give him a job so he tests their system more; plus convert their “loss” to a loan, which he must pay back.”
