So David Anderson in Britain tells you that Henderson and Waitina just packed and left and you believe him? Yet we discuss here daily that number of casualties and the impact of a war is a strong propaganda tool. How many Kenyan soldiers were killed in El Adde?

Mau Mau was the first indigenous uprising over an established colonial power in Africa. Using crude locally made guns and nails for bullets the young men dared to stand up against the empire, the superpower. All they had was the fight in them believing that its the fight in the dog in the fight that mattered. This conviction, passion and sacrifice went on to inspire Mandela, Mugabe and Malcolm X.

.......It's disheartening to know that since the "white" man came to steal & kill in Africa , it's only ETHIOPIA who put up a worthy fight and were not colonised......In kenya MAU MAU also put up a spirited fight but only managed to kill 32 white men ........like what the f**k ..... 32 pekee ? :mad::mad:

Alafu half of the kikuyu population was wiped out after a raping spree of their women by "half baked" british royal army soldiers , while Britain was loosing in world war 3 ......we couldn't even take advantage of them when weakened by JAPAN ...

I get it , ETHIOPIA was a highly organised society unlike kenya , where tribes hated and raided each other , how then could empires be formed when Maasai were pastoralists & fought everyone , Kamba were selling everyone else to arabs as slaves and other tribes collaborated with the white man .... Turkanas were conscripted by the white settlers to fight for them .....wtf !

Yenyewe , Africa was weak and will always be weak....

Bure kabisa! The founders of may may went to Burma for war. Having been forcefully grafted, they saw the opportunity when they had to learn British war formations, (dis)assembling a fun hence learn the mechanics. The Kikuyu culture is of going to a war well planned and mobilized. They now knew the "secrets" of the white man. They saw the fear in his eyes and the shit in their pants, when a barrage of German fire was propelled towards them. On returning they knew what they were up against. They needed time to form am army to recruit and train. By the time the state of emergency was declared they had been active for years in guerrilla tactics, ambushing police stations to amass weapons and deal with sell-outs.

The Mau mau were fighting for land and that's why the kikuyu have land everywhere the mzungu was.

if there were rapes on the stated scale why don't we have very many chotaras in the said community? Ama the Johnies used goat bladder johnies?
There was a significant infusion of the white mans genes among the Kikuyu population. Thi is especially true with the Italian prisoners of war. This might explain the yelow-yello narrative among the kikuyu

Assuming a child was conceived from the rape at the beginning of the uprising in 1952 he would be 67/68 now. Halfcast features are normally quite pronounced in first gen mulattos.

That was the case with south Africa and Zimbabwe, they are mature colonies....oh and the US. The settlers nativize and declare independence. British settlers after losing south Africa identified Kenya and Zimbabwe as conducive to make a home. Mau Mau messed it up for those in Kenya. Years later Ian Smith declared independence in Zimbabwe. This partly explains the close ties existing to date among British settlers in Kenya, south africa and Zimbabwe. When Mugabe invaded white owned ranches, some came to Kenya and their fellow Brits sold them land to start afresh others went to SA

Militarily , the mau mau had no chance against the British empire, imagine this, the British had almost unlimited resources compared to the mau mau, and total control over the nation, and its resources. if you needed a gun you had to steal one from a police station., where could you even buy one???

You have zero contact with any foreign nation or supporters ....

Ethiopia had been an organised society for hundreds of years, they had guns sold to them by russians, yes russians...

If the mau mau fighters had gotten some support like other post 1960 independent movements in Africa like the ones in Mozambique , Zimbabwe, it could have been a game changer.


What matters is that some men with zero financial,no substantial military training, zero military foreign support , were tied of colonialism and tried to fight it.. for 5 yrs they led a rebellion that brought the nation to a standstill.. The British plan of turning Kenya into a white settler nation was stopped..

IF NOT FOR THE MAU MAU WE WOULD BE IN THE SAME MESS as South Africa and Zimbabwe, we would have been fighting for self black rule in the 80s..
Actually 1974 was to be our independence year sans an Ian Smith like coup by White settlers.
Zimbabwe and South Africa benefited a lot from longer White settler rule.
They inherited more sophisticated infrastructure than other nations.The problem has been that Mugabe run down Zimbabwe's infrastructure (even before he kicked out White settlers) and South Africa is unable to fully utilize what they got because over half the population is getting 32% in Matric.
The mess in South Africa is completely of their own making.Notice these issues were not there under Mandela or in Mbeki's first term.Same to Zimbabwe (before you claim sanctions, Did Zimbabwe have to trade only with the West??Sanctions did little to damage Zimbabwe's economy.Nonsense like Nationalization when you do nor have the qualified people to run something.Grabbing land from White settlers then giving it to people who just left the crops to rot in the fields and looting Nigeria style are the main cause of Zimbabwe's misery.)
And it would have spared us Kenyatta and Moi's rule and all the shenanigans of the 1960s such as Mboya's and Pinto 's assassinations.

The 1940 group never encountered any German.
They fought in Burma.
Against the Japanese.
Not the Germans
