5,000 Kenyans Tortured & Abused & It Wasn’t Terrorists – Abusers Apologize & Pay!

The Mau Mau Rebellion, the Kenya Emergency, and the Mau Mau Revolt, was a war in British Kenya.The Mau Mau groups of people, politically dominated by the Kikuyu people, fought against the white European settlers in Kenya and the British Army, e.g. the local Kenya Regiment (British, auxiliaries, and pro–British Kikuyu people).The capture of rebel leader Dedan Kimathi on 21 October 1956 signalled the defeat of the Mau Mau, and ended the British military campaign. The uprising created a rift between the European colonial community in Kenya and the metropole, but also resulted in violent divisions within the Kikuyu community.

The financial cost of the uprising to the former colony amounted to £55 million.

The British response to this clamour for agrarian reform came in the early 1930s when they set up the Carter Land Commission. In Nyanza, for example, the Commission restricted 1,029,422 native Kenyans to 7,114 square miles (18,430 km2), while granting 16,700 square miles (43,000 km2) to 17,000 Europeans. By the 1930s, and for the Kikuyu in particular, land had become the number one grievance concerning colonial rule, the situation so acute by 1948 that 1,250,000 Kikuyu had ownership of 2,000 square miles (5,200 km2), while 30,000 British settlers owned 12,000 square miles (31,000 km2), abeit most of it not on traditional Kikuku land.

Kenya’s version of the U.S. Martin Luther King wanted freedom for the people and any African that wanted that was considered a terrorist. The British along with the rest of the nations that rob and pillage to keep up their estates built by slaves see no problem in the violence that Africans suffer for the greed that has not stopped. Dedan Kimathi Waciuri (31 October 1920 – 18 February 1957) born Kimathi wa Waciuri, was a leader of the Mau Mau which led an armed military struggle known as the Mau Mau Uprising against the British colonial regime in Kenya in the 1950s. Kenyan nationalists view him as the heroic figurehead of the Mau Mau rebellion against British colonial minority rule while the British government saw him as a terrorist. Despite being viewed with disdain by the Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap Moi governments, Kimathi and his fellow Mau Mau rebels have been officially recognised as heroes in the struggle for Kenyan independence since the Mwai Kibaki administration including the unveiling of a Kimathi statue in 2007. This was further reinforced by the passage of a new Constitution in 2010 calling for recognition of national heroes. His capture and execution in 1957 led to the eventual defeat of the uprising by the British colonial government. How long did it take the British government to say they were wrong about the way they went about owning a nation and the people? What nation in Africa has benefited and the people are living well from the resources of gold, silver, diamonds, and oil? Why is there any nation in Africa that is hungry, when each one produces enough resources to be self sufficient?

On 12 September 2015, the British government unveiled a Mau Mau memorial statue in Nairobi’s Uhuru Park that it funded “as a symbol of reconciliation between the British government, the Mau Mau, and all those who suffered”. This followed a June 2013 decision by Britain to compensate more than 5,000 Kenyans tortured and abused during the Mau Mau insurgency

In 1956, on 21 October, four years to the day after the start of the uprising, a group led by Ian Henderson arrested Kimathi in the Nyeri forest. His capture marked the end of the forest war. A court presided over by Chief Justice O’Connor and with an all-black jury of Kenyans sentenced him to death while he lay in a hospital bed at the General Hospital Nyeri. In the early morning of 18 February 1957 he was executed by hanging at the Kamiti Maximum Security Prison. He was buried in an unmarked grave, and his burial site remains unknown. Kimathi was married to Mukami Kimathi. Among their children are sons Wachiuri and Maina and daughters Nyawira and Wanjugu.

The government constructed a three-bedroomed house for Mukami at her farm in Kinangop, Nyandarua County in 2009 and provided her with a double cabin pickup for private use in 2012. In 2010, Kimathi’s widow requested that the search for her husband’s body be renewed so she could give him a proper burial.


What is it like when the place you call home is invaded and your family is torn apart? What does Agenda 21 really look like and what treatment can the people expect? FEMA camps are no different than a refugee camp, and the nwo is waiting to fill them just like they filled camps all throughout Africa and claimed land for themselves. Greed has been the only thing turning the world around – isn’t it time for LOVE for “ALL” mankind and leadership that promotes it and PEACE? The video below shows the world actions revealing the true content of the character and why the world is what it is today. There are those who do unto others that they wouldn’t like done unto them, so why do they do it? For GREED & POWER! What some call democracy, others would call enslavement. Have Africans ever been free?
