Cape Town - A GROUP of Cape Town “hacktivists”, who took to the streets of Cape Town on Saturday, many wearing masks, have vowed to target businesses or government departments that “do something wrong against citizens”.
Anonymous Cape Town, taking their cue from the global movement, identified the SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) as their first “target”.
Members generally don’t disclose their identities, instead wearing white masks, copying the anarchist character in the Hollywood film V for Vendetta.
One member said: “We want to change the system. We don’t hack for personal gain. We hack for the gain of others.
“A lot of our guys are planning to hack Sanral because of the way they evicted informal settlers in Lwandle (Strand). They did something wrong. We want to hack them and get the message out that what they did was wrong. We can quite easily take down their website.”
