According to allegations from the star, an agent from one of the major political parties once attempted to hack the system from within Bomas. This attempt, however, was unsuccessful as it was spotted and his laptop was seized.

The commission's chief executive, Hussein Marjan, declared on Friday that protections are in place to ensure the integrity of data generated from results.

"We guarantee the entire nation that our systems are secure; if you have any doubts, please contact us so that we can increase the security methods," Marjan added.
