Christopher Wylie, the 28-year-old political strategist told the British parliamentary committee on media that one of Cambridge’s former employees, Dan Muresan, may have been murdered during a business trip in Kenya.
Muresan, 32, was found dead in a hotel room in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2012. The cause of death was listed as a heart attack, according to Romanian press.
Muresan was the head of elections at SCL Group, Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, for two years before his death. According to one report, Muresan communicated that he just landed a contract in Nairobi and was planning to visit his father afterwards.
Deal gone sour
SCL is known to operate in Kenya. In an undercover video recorded by Britain’s Channel 4 News, Cambridge Analytica executive Mark Turnbull said the company had worked for President Uhuru Kenyatta during the 2013 and 2017 elections.
According to Wylie, a deal that Muresan was allegedly working on went wrong. This, he further elaborates, led to the poisoning of the latter in his hotel room. Wylie also adds that police officers were bribed not to enter the hotel room for 24hours.
Wylie said he had heard about Muresan’s death second-hand and as such could not verify the authenticity of the account.
