British Propaganda Firm Made Kenyan President Smell Like Roses

Mark Turnbull, the managing director of Cambridge Analytica's Political Global, says they engineered a digital campaign that painted President Uhuru Kenyatta in a positive light while smearing his main rival Raila Odinga during the 2013 and 2017 election periods. The propaganda firm says it has worked in more than 200 elections around the world.
