Much of the geographic and ethnic divisions currently seen in Kenya were established and encouraged during British colonialism. The Kenyan people have sued the British government for human rights abuses commited by their forces. Soldiers who had fought loyally for Britain during World War 2 came back to find white Britsh immigrants living on their fertile land while harassing local women.When Kenyan people fought for their independence, as they were'nt allowed to vote, the British invaders used: Torture Detention camps for up to 70,000 people Castration and blinding Fatal whipping Rape by British soldiers Rape with bottles of hot water The British Army also used Northern Kenya for military exercises. As a result of leaving unexploded munitions behind, hundreds of Maasai...
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.

Recommended further reading - http://amzn.to/2gHCabA 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 s...

The '''Mau Mau Uprising''' ( 1952–60 ) , also 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, For Example: 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 Mau Mau failed to capture widespread public support, partly due to the British policy of divide and rule, and the movement remained internally divided, despite attempts to unify its various strands. The British, meanwhile, could draw upon the strate...
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...

In which we discuss these three subjects in depth
Produced by The Rank Organisation, a British entertainment conglomerate founded by industrialist J. Arthur Rank in April 1937. The company name lasted until February 1996 when the name and some of the remaining assets were absorbed into the newly structured the Rank Group Plc.
Fifty years after Kenya attained internal self rule, the infamous provincial administration that had its roots in the colonial administration is now fading away. We focus on a former British colonial district officer who remained in kenya and became a Kenyan citizen even as his colleagues went back to their motherland. His story is that of a colonial officer who went against the grain and supported the Mau Mau movement, later becoming a witness in the Mau Mau case against the British government. Alex Chamwada caught up with him and filed the following story.

Put your old ladies back into bed
Your old men back into their graves
Cover their ears so they can't hear us sing
Cover their eyes so that can't see us play
Get out of the way
Let the people play
We're gonna get down on you
Come alive all over you
Dancin' down into your town
Tyrannosaurus Rex was destroyed before
By a furry little ball that crawled along
The primeval jungle floor
And he stole the eggs of the dinosaur
CLOSE YOUR EYES & CREATE THE SOUND
OPEN YOUR HANDS & REBUILD THE GROUND
We are egg snatchers -
flashin' sunshine children
You unlease the dogs
of a grade-B movie star governor's war
While you sit in the dark -
insane with the fear of dying
We'll ball in your parks
- insane with the flash of living
I AM ALIVE
I AM HUMAN
I WILL BE ALIVE AGAIN
So drop your fuckin' bombs
Burn your demon babies
I WILL BE AGAIN -
The rabid lover-feelin' the starch in your grin
Callin' for acid cocaine and grass
And receiving your homemade gin
PUSH THE BUTTON
PULL THE SWITCH
CUT THE BEAM
C'MON MAKE IT MARCH
Sign me up as a diplomat - my only office is the park
You need to be out before you come in
And after you come you go
In the midst of Yang is a smaller part of Yin
And when it happens you know -
THE DAWN COMES
Whatever you think of us is totally irrelevant
Both to us now and to you
We are the present
We are the future
You are the past
Pay your dues and get outta the way
'Cause we're not the way you used to be
When you were very young
We're something new
We don't quite know what it is
Or particularly care
We just do it - You gotta do it
Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin'
Open your eyes there's a new world today
Open your hearts people are lovin'
Open it all we're here to stay
