Kenya        Mau Mau rebels        "Kenya emergency"        1952

 

In the early 1950s,

Mau Mau rebels

murdered 32 people

in an uprising against

colonial rule in Kenya.

 

Britain's response

was brutal:

150,000 Kenyans

were detained

in camps where,

survivors claim,

prisoners were beaten,

tortured, sexually abused

and even murdered.

Let's end the myths of Britain's imperial past        G        2011

 

David Cameron

to the days of the British empire with pride.
