Dedan Kimathi


Dedan Kimathi was a heroic and revolutionary leader who fought against the British colonial regime in Kenya in the 1950s. He led Kenya’s independence movement, Mau Mau Uprising, as a freedom fighter and by serving as a senior military and spiritual leader. Mau Mau’s sole purpose was to remove white settlers who had forcefully taken up land previously owned by Kenyans. After the relentless fight, the colonial government captured and hanged him to death at Kamiti prison.
