Cambridge Analytica. Whistleblower. Murder. Kenya.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie has told a British parliamentary committee that his predecessor, Dan Muresan who died in a Kenyan hotel room in 2012, may have been poisoned. The British data mining firm admitted that it 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 period. The firm also admitted to working on election campaigns for other African leaders.

Canadian data analytics expert Christopher Wylie, who worked at Cambridge Analytica, appears as a witness before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee of members of the British parliament at the Houses of Parliament in central London on March 27, 2018.
