CNN corners President Uhuru Kenyatta over links with Cambridge Analytica

He spoke with CNN while at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London

He added that he only heard of the firm in the news and that most of the speeches he made during campaigns were informal.

“I hear it on your news media. You need to just look at the speeches that we were making across the country and tell me what speech has been written by them, 99 percent of all the speeches I made during that period were off the cuff and I addressed over 700 political rallies,” he said.

Cambridge Analytica Chief Executive Alexander Nix and other senior officials were exposed in a secretly recorded video admitting to interference with over 200 elections around the world including the 2013 and 2017 General elections in Kenya.
