ICT Association of Uganda or ICTAU’s website is currently down. Dignited was today tipped off about the incident by one of our avid readers.
From what it looks like however, the website seems to have been hacked although we can’t confirm that. Online users who attempt to visit the association’s website will be greeted by a message indicating the website’s temporal unavailability.
“The website you were trying to reach is temporarily unavailable. Please check back soon. If you are the owner of this website, please contact Technical Support as soon as possible.”
Simon Kaheru the Association’s chairman didn’t confirm nor deny the possibility of the organization’s website being hacked in a tweet.

ICTAU is an umbrella body that brings together ICT professionals in Uganda. The organization holds #ICTAUgLAN, a monthly networking event that aims at bringing together different people directly and indirectly involved in the ICT industry of Uganda. The purpose is to foster networking, sharing of ideas, opportunities and discussing a way forward for the Ugandan ICT industry in an informal ICT-focused environment.
Update: The ICTAU website is back up.
