Mau Mau Memorial Opens

 

As some of our clients may be aware a memorial was unveiled in Uhuru Park Nairobi on 12th September 2015 following the previous litigation in which the British government acknowledged and apologised for the crimes committed during the Emergency. The memorial’s centrepiece is a sculpture, cast in bronze ,of a woman handing food to a fighter. Their faces are turned away as was Mau Mau custom,so that they could’nt identify each other if caught.

 

Christian Turner the current British High Commissioner said the monument was a symbol of reconciliation between the Mau Mau ,”and all those who suffered during the emergency period.”
