CNN editorial team has deleted an interview with Kenyan Deputy President Wiliam Ruto that went on air on Saturday afternoon.
As she was apologizing to CNN youtube fans, CNN chief editor Meredith Artley explained what went wrong.
“Our interview with Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto was one of the worst interviews we have ever hosted. The discussion didn’t match our standards. Therefore, our viewers won’t be able to watch it on our youtube channel, we apologize.” she lamented.
“Our producer has pulled the whole nonsense down. It was embarrassing to host such character. Once again we are sorry.” she added.
The Kenyan Deputy President, in an interview with CNN, accused opposition leader Mr. Odinga of resorting to violence to stamp his mark on the election which he declined to participate.
Ruto commended the Jubilee turnout for the repeat election which he claimed stood at 7.5 million.
But according to CNN correspondent in Kenya, the turnout was as low as 33 percent which the DP disputed on live interview.
However, according to country’s electoral body, the turnout was 48 percent but Mr.Kenyatta gathered more votes than the turnout.
Meanwhile, here is the video of the controversial interview;
