The Mau Mau claims

Thousands of Kenyan nationals were subjected to torture and other forms of ill-treatment at the hands of the British colonial administration during the Kenya Emergency in the 1950s. Detainees were subjected to arbitrary killings, severe physical assaults and extreme acts of inhuman and degrading treatment.

We acted for over 5,000 survivors, obtaining an apology from the British Government, £19.9 m of compensation, and an agreement that the government would finance the construction of a memorial in Kenya to the victims of colonial era torture.
