Kenya, Libya surface in Clinton-Trump debate

27 September 2016, 13:47

Nairobi - Kenya and Libya were both mentioned during the highly-anticipated US presidential debate between candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump on Monday.

According to a BBC report, real estate tycoon Trump made mention of Kenya while claiming that rival Clinton had embarked on a smear campaign against current President Barack Obama through the dissemination of false information relating to his heritage.

Trump alleged that Clinton started a rumour relating to Obama's birthplace, while claiming that he was not born on US soil.

The Republican went on further to state that Clinton, along with the help of her campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, had sent an aide to the east African country to collect evidence proving that Obama had, in fact, been born in Kenya.

Solis Doyle has since dismissed Trumps utterances as "absurd", while stating that such the probe never took place.

"I never sent anyone to Kenya to look for his birth certificate," Solis Doyle was reported by CNN as saying.

Libya also surfaced during the heated debate, with both candidates bickering in a bid to prove that the other supported the removal of Muammar Gaddafi as leader of the state.

Clinton, who was the US Secretary of State during Gaddafi's fall, kicked back at Trump's jabs at her supposed 'lack of judgement', claiming that the businessman also supported Gaddafi's removal.

In addition, Clinton also claimed that Trump had previously entered into deals with the slain leader.
