They died fighting for the British in Burma, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and India in WW2. My guess.
It's simple.they went under.
Because of the bubbling Mau Mau insurgency, Kikuyu males were wanted by the colonial authorities at the time. Then there wasvm the Hut tax. Every male had to pay.
It was then beneficial to be invisible
