Bombers hacked into a CEO Africa Round Table (CEOART) Digital Conversation when the business leaders’ organisation was hosting the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Professor Mthuli Ncube last week. This came to light late last week when CEOART Chief Executive, Kipson Gundani issued a statement on the incident.

Gundani apologised to Prof Ncube for the incident.

“CEOART would like to apologise to honourable Professor Mthuli Ncube, board members, participants and all for a Zoom bombing incident which occurred at the beginning of the webinar,” said Gundani.

Despite the unfortunate incident, the conversation went ahead successfully. The organisation successfully hosted another conversation featuring businessman, Shingi Mutasa.

Gundani indicated that following the negative episode, CEOART had put in place a number of measures to prevent the recurrence of similar mishaps in the future.

These include the requirement for participants to pre-register prior to any edition of the Digital Conversations. Login in details will only be shared with participants when they register. Going forward, participants will be required to submit their user names for ease of administration.

Those who do not register have the option of following the proceedings of conversations on the organisation’s Facebook page.

Since postponing its CEO Round Table conference which it had pencilled for March in Victoria Falls due to the coronavirus pandemic, CEOART is one business organisation which has been a torchbearer in the adoption of technology such as Zoom to carry out business meetings.
