Rape, Genocide and a Cover-up:
How Britain Tortured and Killed 300,000 Kenyans
In Kenya, the British would pour pepper into the genitals of women, crush the testicles of men, rip them off and make them eat the testicles, sodomize prisoners with bottles and brooms. By 1960, 300,000 Kikuyu were either unaccounted for or dead.
Some British folks are delusional, others are ignorant, others are both but a few have the guts to face the truth. What is the truth of the British empire in Kenya? The truth is Kikuyu blood sinking into the land stolen from the same Kikuyu by white men playing an elaborate game of finders-keepers commissioned by British royalty. The truths modern Britain has no balls to accept are crushed and ripped out testicles of Kikuyu men, mutilated breasts of women as well as cut off ears and fingers. Beneficiaries of imperialism are blinded by their privilege to the gouging of Kikuyu eyes by the colonialist machinery and they are too busy on the colonial gravy train that they do not realize that in Kenya, men were dragged by Landrovers until they disintegrated into chunks of scavenger food. These are the truths modern Britain refused to tell until it was forced to and even when it did, numerous people attempted to downplay the ruthlessness of the British imperialist machinery.
In 2012, the British Foreign Office was humiliated by its own dishonesty which had spanned for decades until then. It was revealed that Britain systematically destroyed evidence that would have exposed the evil of its imperialist machine to the world. The Guardian reported, "Those papers that survived the purge were flown discreetly to Britain where they were hidden for 50 years in a secret Foreign Office archive, beyond the reach of historians and members of the public, and in breach of legal obligations for them to be transferred into the public domain." It was dishonest and most unfortunate but the truth proved too big a secret to hide. The papers showed that ministers in London knew the Kikuyu were being tortured and killed in Kenya chose to remain silent. They also showed that Iain Macleod, secretary of state for the colonies, directed that post-independence governments should not get any material that "might embarrass Her Majesty's government". All Britain wanted to do was save face but the blood of the Kikuyu would tell a different story and escape the labyrinth of British lies and deceit. A claim for compensation filed in 2009 by five victims of British torture (Mutua Case) shook the tables and forced the Foreign Office to embarrass itself by releasing damning papers. Years later, the British government publicly accepted wrongdoing in Kenya.

The story of British brutality in Kenya took a macabre turn on 20 October 1952 when a state of emergency was declared by Sir Evelyn Baring as a response to the Mau Mau uprising. According to Benjamin Grob-Fotzgibbon in his book The Imperial End Game - Britain's Dirty Wars, the term Mau Mau is one with no meaning in the Kikuyu language but might have been a European distortion of the Kikuyu word "muma" being an oath.
