Mau Mau Reparations

In this edition of African Perspectives we start of with headlines and then an interview with George Morara of the Kenya Human Rights Commission. In July of this year, 4 elderly Kenyan men won a "historic" ruling which takes them one step nearer to winning damages from the British Government over colonial atrocities during the Mau Mau uprising. These men were Mau Mau freedom fighters and endured torture and mistreatment from colonial officials during the Kenya struggle for independence.

For more information on the case and the work of the Kenyan Human Rights Commission, check out their website.
