• White Terror BBC Documentary

    BBC Documentary on the concentration camps set up by the British government in the 1950s in which thousands of Kenyans were tortured and killed. Britain fought in the Second World War to save the world from fascism. But just a few years after the defeat of Hitler came the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya - a mass armed rebellion by the Kikuyu people, demanding the return of their land and freedom. The draconian response of Britain's colonial government was to detain nearly the entire Kikuyu population of one-and-a half-million - to hold them in camps or confine them in villages ringed with barbed wire - and to portray them as sub-human savages. From 1952 until the end of the war in 1960 tens of thousands of detainees - and possibly a hundred thousand or more - died from the combined effects of...

  • Kenya - Mau Mau Uprising

    Opposition against British colonial rule in Kenya culminated in the Mau Mau uprising, which began in 1952. The political changes that took place after independence in 1963 had important consequences for Asians living there. Film clips taken from Mau Mau, showing Kenya during the Mau Mau uprising, made circa 1954. The British commentary encapsulates colonial attitudes of the time. This clip is taken from the Imperial War Museum's new online exhibition - 'Through My Eyes: Stories of conflict, belonging and identity.' The site can be accessed on www.throughmyeyes.org.uk.

  • Mau Mau (Part One)

    The origin of the term Mau Mau is uncertain. According to some members of Mau Mau, they never referred to themselves as such, instead preferring the military title Kenya Land and Freedom Army (KLFA). Some publications, such as Fred Majdalany's State of Emergency: The Full Story of Mau Mau, claim it was an anagram of Uma Uma (which means "get out get out") and was a military codeword based on a secret language-game Kikuyu boys used to play at the time of their circumcision. Majdalany goes on to state that the British simply used the name as a label for the Kikuyu ethnic community without assigning any specific definition. As the movement progressed, a Swahili backronym was adopted: "Mzungu Aende Ulaya, Mwafrika Apate Uhuru" meaning "Let the foreigner go back abroad, let the African regain i...

  • British and Kenyans [Mau Mau] vs. Ottomans and Armenians

    The British went into Kenya in 1895 with no complaints from the Christian West that first started making moral judgments on what was widely proclaimed as Armenian massacres in their press. After beginning colonization in earnest, the British declared Kenya a "white man's country" in 1915, the year we are told there was a genocide against the Armenians. After conducting themselves as what Malcolm X has called a "vulturous society," some Kenyans got tired of the master-slave relationship, and began a four-year rebellion in 1952. Their terrorist group, the Mau Mau, followed similar strategies to Armenian Dashnaks and Hunchaks. Relentless propaganda has allowed for many to believe that the Ottomans committed a "genocide" against their Armenians, as much as there is no evidence for intent, ...

It is the latest stage of a legal battle by veterans of the rebellion to sue the UK government. Hundreds of elderly Kenyans claim they were the victims of brutality at the hands of British colonial officials. The government has previously said it was not liable. Papers in the test case were first served on the UK in 2009. Last year a High Court judge ruled the claimants - Paulo Muoka Nzili, Wambuga Wa Nyingi and Jane Muthoni Mara - did have an arguable case.

  • Black Man's Land - Mau Mau crisis

    In October 1952 the British government declared a State of Emergency in Kenya. Its object: the defeat of "Mau Mau." In the war that followed, fewer than 40 of Kenya’s 40,000 white settlers were killed while more than 15,000 Africans lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands more were arrested and subjected to a humiliating and often brutal process of "rehabilitation." But what was Mau Mau? A movement based, according to the British Colonial Secretary, on a "perverted nationalism and a sort of nostalgia for barbarism"? Or the Land Freedom Army, an organized political and military response to repression and armed aggression? Using newsreel and previously inaccessible archive footage, and drawing on interviews with participants on both sides, Mau Mau examines the myth and the reality of Afr...

From 1952 until the end of the war in 1960 tens of thousands of detainees - and possibly a hundred thousand or more - died from the combined effects of exhaustion, disease, starvation and systemic physical brutality. Until now these events have remained untold, largely because the British government in Kenya destroyed most of its files. For the last eight years Caroline Elkins has conducted exhaustive research to piece together the story, unearthing reams of documents and interviewing several hundred Kikuyu survivors.

Relentless propaganda has allowed for many to believe that the Ottomans committed a "genocide" against their Armenians, as much as there is no evidence for intent, as required by the 1948 U.N. Convention for Genocide. Meanwhile, hardly anyone is familiar with the Mau Mau story. (A story which made some recent headlines, when President Barack Obama took away Winston Churchill's bust from the White House; Obama's grandfather was one of the victims of Churchill's brutal crackdown.) This video offers a comparison to the way the British handled their Kenyans, at an age that was relatively more modern than the 1915 years, with the way the supposedly genocidal Ottomans handled their rebellious Armenians.
