Mau Mau Uprising
|Date||1952 - 1960|
|Description||A Kenyan independence movement in the 1950s that faced brutal opposition by the UK.|
The Mau Mau Uprising was an independence movement in Kenya.
On 12 September 2015, the British Government unveiled a Mau Mau memorial statue in Nairobi's Uhuru Park that it had funded "as a symbol of reconciliation between the British government, the Mau Mau, and all those who suffered". This followed a June 2013 decision by Britain to compensate more than 5,000 Kenyans tortured and abused during the Mau Mau insurgency.
