Cambridge Analytica Christopher Wylie has today revealed his predecessor died mysteriously in a  Kenyan hotel room - and may have been poisoned.

The tech specialist said Dan Muresan was found dead in 2012 amid reports that a deal he was working on went 'sour'.

Giving evidence to the culture select committee of MPs, Mr Wylie told how rumours that Mr Muresan had been killed circulated around the controversial data firm.

And he heard talk the Kenyan police had been bribed not to enter the hotel room for 24 hours in a bid to cover up the possible murder.

He made the explosive comments to a committee of MPs investigating the spread of fake news.

Rumours that the death could have been murdered will fuel concerns about Cambridge Analytica and the shady world it operated in.

Cambridge Analytica Christopher Wylie has today revealed that his predecessor died mysteriously in a Kenyan hotel room - and may have been poisoned.

Giving evidence to the culture select committee of MPs today (pictured)  Mr Wylie told how rumours that Mr Muresan had been killed circulated around the controversial data firm

Mr Wylie said his predecessor had been working for President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election campaign when he was found dead.

He said: 'Cambridge Analytica was working with Kenyan politicians, but because in a lot of African countries if a deal goes wrong you pay for it.

Dan Muresan was Cambridge Analytica's elections chief when he died in mysterious circumstances in 2012.

He was the son of Romania's former Agriculture Minister Ioan Avram Muresan.

He was a graduate of LSE and had a master's degree in political management from the George Washington University., according to reports.

And he had worked on election strategies in various states of south Africa, south-east Asia and eastern Europe.

According to his profile on LinkedIn, the young man was a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science and had a master's degree in political management from the George Washington University. He had also coordinated election campaigns in the US states of Virginia and Texas, but also in Europe and Africa.

Romania's Foreign Ministry told the Bucharest Herald at the time: 'The Romanian citizen was working with a British telecommunications company, being in Kenya for a while.

'He had not yet registered his presence on Kenyan territory with the Romanian diplomatic mission. The same source shows that after the police arrived, the body was taken by an undertaker company for an autopsy.'

'Dan was my predecessor....what I heard was that he was working on some kind of deal of some sort - I'm not sure what.

'The deal went sour.

'People suspected he was poisoned in his hotel room. I also heard that the police had got bribed not to enter the hotel room for 24 hours.'

He added: 'That is what I was told - I was not there so I speak to the veracity of it.'

Mr Wylie said that when he joined Cambridge Analytica in 2012 he did not know the name of his predecessor or what happened to him.

But he asked his colleagues after he could not find a file he was hunting for. It was then that he heard the rumours about the death, MPs were told.

Mr Muresan was the son of former Romanian Agriculture Minister Ioan Avram Muresan, who is now in prison for corruption charges.

His mysterious death made the news in his home country.

According to a report of his death which ran in 2012 in the Bucharest Herald, the 32 year-old had studied at the LSE in London and had coordinated election campaigns in Europe, Africa and the US.

Romania's Foreign Ministry told the Bucharest Herald at the time: 'The Romanian citizen was working with a British telecommunications company, being in Kenya for a while.

'He had not yet registered his presence on Kenyan territory with the Romanian diplomatic mission.

'The same source shows that after the police arrived, the body was taken by an undertaker company for an autopsy.'

In a lengthy appearance in front of the select committee, Mr Wylie also made more claims about questionable activities carried out by the SCL Group, a strategic communications company linked to CA.

Christopher Wylie (pictured last night with Vote Leave whistleblower Shahmir Sanni) also said that Cambridge Analytica's  parent company SCL was involved in the distribution of kompromat during the Nigerian elections in 2015 in an effort to intimidate voters

He claimed that SCL had been involved in a project in Nigeria in 2015 which had involved hacking the private information of Muhammadu Buhari, who was running for president.

Cambridge Analytica's parent company was involved in the distribution of kompromat to try to intimate voters in the Nigerian election in 2015, a whistleblower today claimed.

Christopher Wylie said SCL was involved in a project involving the hacking the private information of Muhammadu Buhari, who was running for president.

He claimed AIQ distributed compromising material - known as kompromat - and videos designed of people having their throats slit to intimidate Mr Buhari's supporters.

He told MPs: 'The company utilised the services of an Israeli private intelligence firm, Black Cube.

'Black Cube on the Nigeria project was engaged to hack the now-president Buhari to get access to his medical records and private emails.

'AIQ worked on that project. AIQ was handed material in Nigeria from Cambridge Analytica to distribute online.

'That's distribution of kompromat and of incredibly threatening and violent video content which I've passed on to the committee.

'The videos that AIQ distributed in Nigeria with the sole intent of intimidating voters included content where people were being dismembered, where people were having their throats cut and bled to death in a ditch, they were being burned alive.
