the mau mau were what?  It’s official. They were Freedom Fighters. Not in a sane world tho.

Foreign Secretary William Hague has announced a £19.9 million compensation settlement for Kenyans tortured during the Mau Mau uprising in the 1950s. He said the “British Government recognises that Kenyans were subject to torture” and “sincerely regrets that these abuses took place”.

$29,842,038.10 USD , or 21 plus million depending on what newspaper you are reading.

One of the savages has had this to say.

“It is not quite enough because of the punishment we had”

Kenyans tortured by British colonial forces during the Mau Mau uprising will receive payouts totalling £20m, Foreign Secretary William Hague has announced.
He said the UK government recognised Kenyans were tortured and it “sincerely regrets” the abuses that took place.

A lawyer for the victims said they “at last have the recognition and justice they have sought for many years”.
Thousands of people were killed during the Mau Mau revolt against British rule in Kenya in the 1950s.

Mr Hague also announced plans to support the construction of a permanent memorial to the victims in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

Might that include the white civilian victims as well? 
Hmm. Right. Didn’t think so.

Wambuga Wa Nyingi, 85, detailed his torture at the hands of the British colonial authorities in a witness statement.
He was a tractor driver and member of the pro-independence Kenya African Union - but never took the Mau Mau oath.
He survived the Hola massacre in 1959, when 11 Kenyans were beaten to death by prison guards in a detention camp.

He said: “I was battered on the back of my head and around my neck repeatedly with a club. I believe that the beating went on for up to 20 minutes…
“I lay unconscious with the 11 corpses for two days in a room where the corpses had been placed awaiting burial.
“The people who put me there thought I was also dead.”

“I would like to make clear now, and for the first time, on behalf of Her Majesty’s government, that we understand the pain and grievance felt by those who were involved in the events of the emergency in Kenya,” he told the Commons.
“The British government recognises that Kenyans were subject to torture and other forms of ill-treatment at the hands of the colonial administration.
“The British government sincerely regrets that these abuses took place and that they marred Kenya’s progress towards independence.”

Mr Hague said 5,228 victims would receive payments totalling £19.9m following an agreement with lawyers acting for the victims, who have been fighting for compensation for a number of years.

The compensation amounts to about £3,000 per victim and applies only to the living survivors of the abuses that took place.

Mr Hague said Britain still did not accept it was legally liable for the actions of what was a colonial administration in Kenya.

Christian Turner, the British High Commissioner to Kenya, also made a statement on the settlement to members of the Mau Mau War Veterans’ Association in Nairobi.
Gitu wa Kahengeri, secretary-general of the association, said it was the “beginning of reconciliation between the Mau Mau freedom fighters of Kenya and the British government”.

The above link is a week old but … Of course NO SURPRISE ….

This is just an hour old. Take a look.


Mau Mau veteran families seek more from UK

http://www.nation.co.ke/Counties/Mau-Mau-veteran...seek.../-/index.html
1 hour ago – Relatives of Mau Mau fighters tortured during the British colonial rule are demanding more compensation from the UK.

· They want the British Government to compensate them with an amount equivalent to one kilogramme of gold for each year of the 70 years of colonial rule.
· A kilogramme of gold is estimated to be worth $39,041 (Sh3,318,485) in the black market.

So for no good or just reason, the Brits were just mean and nasty racist white guys and the Mau did nothing to warrant the treatment they received. 

How many other peoples and tribes will now demand, com – pen – say – shon?

The Brits would have been justified in wiping out the entire tribe of butchering savages.  How about compensation to the families of the white farmers who were murdered by these vermin?  Will they have to part with any of that new found free money to their victims? Yeah. Sure thing.
Fracked up pc world.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
