Dedan Kimathi’s kin celebrate his birthday


Residents of Kahigaini village in Nyeri County on Wednesday celebrated Mau Mau veteran Dedan Kimathi’s birthday by holding a commemoration of Mau Mau fighters.

Speaking to Ghetto Radio on phone Elsie Mukami  a granddaughter of Dedan Kimathi said they decided to celebrate the birthday with Mau Mau veterans because they all took part in the struggle and did not get the recognition they deserved.

The event was held at Kahigaini ward the location where Dedan Kimathi was arrested by the colonial government officials as it is a special place for the locals and the event is expected to be celebrated yearly even if its at different locations.
