Kenya’s biggest opposition party called for an independent probe of Cambridge Analytica’s role in last year’s protracted presidential elections that were marred by violence.
“We have rebranded the entire party twice, written their manifesto, done two rounds of 50,000 surveys,” Turnbull said. “Then we’d write all the speeches and we’d stage the whole thing. So just about every element of his campaign.”
William Kipkemoi Kisang, a Jubilee Party member and chairman of the Kenyan National Assembly’s departmental committee on communication, information and innovation, said he couldn’t immediately comment.
“I am looking at the reports and I’ll bring it to the attention of the committee,” which next meets on Thursday, he said.
Calls to London number listed on Cambridge Analytica’s website didn’t connect, and the company didn’t immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
Cambridge Analytica “strongly denies the claims” made by Channel 4 and other media outlets, the company said in a statement on its website on Tuesday.
