Naomi Nziula Kimweli, her husband Kimweli Mbithuka Kilatya, and their three children are on a bus, returning to their home town to celebrate Christmas in what today is central Kenya. Life is good: Kimweli works at the Department of Public Works and Naomi is five months pregnant with their fourth. But then soldiers stop the coach and force everybody off. Kenya was then a colony of the United Kingdom, and the soldiers were commanded by a British officer. The soldiers separate the men from the women and children, and haul the passengers to a detention camp.

Now 87, Naomi wears a flowery dress and colourful hecarf, but her eyes are sad and her face angry as she recounts her ordeal. In the meantime, her husband, Kimweli, now 91, suffered his own torment. Then he says he was pushed to the ground, ordered to straighten his legs and trampled on, slowly. Pulling up the hems of his trousers, he reveals scars he says are from wounds inflicted upon him that day.

Then they used pliers and I felt a very painful Castration torture stories of my testicles.

A few years earlier, a local movement had started revolting against the British colonial administration, which had ruled the area since Castration torture stories with other tribes, the Kikuyus had been forced to live in ethnic reserves that were too small for them, and required to possess a special permit to move around the country.

Many ended up as cheap labour on white-owned farms in what had become known as the White Highlands. Many of their European masters were young, upper-class British officers who had resettled there after World War I; others had arrived from South Africa and British-administered Rhodesia. Most enjoyed a life of luxury on their large, servant-staffed estates. But, bygrowing unrest on the farms had alerted the colonial government to the existence of the so-called Mau Mau movement, which it subsequently banned in But just two years later, violence erupted as rebels began attacking farms and killing Africans they considered to be supporting the regime.

Their aim was to end colonial rule. The Mau Mau were said to be united by a secret Kikuyu oath that involved drinking blood and even eating human flesh. When the rebels started killing Europeans too, the newly appointed governor, Castration torture stories Evelyn Baring, declared a state of emergency in the colony. It was Octoberand the war against the Mau Mau had officially begun. The colonial authorities struck swiftly and, intending to thwart the rebellion at its very beginning, arrested around people, among them Jomo Kenyatta, the leader of the Kenyan African Union KAUa predominantly Kikuyu political organisation.

But the actual leaders of the guerrillas, who, like Dedan Kimathi, came from the most radical wing of the KAU, had already escaped into the forests, from where they would continue their fight. The rebels possessed few firearms so used spears and machetes. When they killed, they left the bodies torn to pieces.

Living in the bush, they grew dishevelled, with long hair or dreadlocks, and some wore animal skins. The fact that they mostly killed other Africans enabled the administration to frame the conflict as inter-Kenyan, one that the authorities were obliged to pacify. Compared with almost all the other veterans, things are good for the secretary of their association, who ended up becoming a member of parliament and now has a state pension.

The hotel was already here in the s, when its guests were Europeans arriving in the administrative capital of British Kenya. Gitu says he ed the Mau Mau movement in and spent seven years in detention after being arrested in Back then, while the regime soldiers fought the guerrillas, the colonial government also conducted a campaign of mass arrests. Almost anybody even slightly suspected of belonging to the Mau Mau was arrested and taken to a detention camp or prison where they were then interrogated and often tortured and abused.

Many women, like Naomi, were raped with glass bottles. Many men, like Kimweli, were castrated with pliers. Few prisoners were brought before a court of law. They were classified according to how dangerous they were perceived to be, and they were continually moved from one camp or prison to another until they were considered safe to be sent to a reserve.

These were surrounded by barbed wire, guarded by soldiers and resembled the detention camps in everything but name.

There is contention about how many people were detained, but Harvard historian Caroline Elkins estimates that betweenandKenyans were taken to detention camps. In total, she says, up to 1. The rebellion proved to be much more difficult to deal with than the British had anticipated: the colonial government brought in 20, extra soldiers and used the British Royal Air Force to try to strike the rebels in the forests.

In Octoberthe Mau Mau leader Dedan Kimathi was shot and captured, effectively alling the end of the fighting in the bush. Kimathi was tried and sentenced to death.

He was hanged in February the following year. Finally, inthe state of emergency was lifted, and the Castration torture stories regime filed the uprising away as just a savage conflict conducted mostly between Africans. The rebellion, however, had helped to accelerate the transition of power, as had been happening in other European colonies. Three years later, inKenya was declared independent. Its first government was led by Jomo Kenyatta, by then on friendly terms with the UK. The new masters had little interest in bringing to light the wrongs committed by either side during the uprising, or in recognising the role played by the Mau Mau fighters.

The Kenyan government did not remove the law banning the Mau Mau movement, and so the veterans remained barred from meeting and organising themselves into any kind of association. The death toll of the conflict remains a source of dispute today. The Mau Mau killed around 1, Africans because of their supposed loyalty to the colonial regime, and a further 32 European and 26 Asian civilians, according to figures compiled by David Anderson, a professor of African history at the University of Warwick in the UK.

According to the official figures, the rebels also killed some colonial security forces during combat. But as most of them were Africans, not more than Europeans died as a result of the uprising. In contrast, at least 11, rebels were killed by the regime, and historians such as Anderson calculate the of Kenyan casualties to be at least 20, — possibly more.

Harvard historian Elkins, Castration torture stories estimates have been disputed by some of her colleagues, says betweenandAfricans are uned for. All these disagreements were made possible by the fact that, as researchers such as Elkins discovered, many official documents from the time of the uprising were nowhere to be found. It seemed the British government had actually tried to delete that part of its imperial past.

Things suddenly changed in The KHRC said it had documented 40 cases of sexual abuse, castration and illegal detention. From those cases, the commission was finally able to present five Mau Mau veterans as claimants in mid As part of the research for the legal case, Professor Anderson made a startling discovery in He found out that the British government had indeed smuggled out of Kenya a huge of official documents, which were still being kept secret on special premises.

The judge for the case ordered the government to release these. More than 7, secret files were found in 36 other former British colonies. The British government argued that any legal responsibility for the Mau Mau case had passed on to the Kenyan government along with independence, and that a fair trial was not possible after such a long time. The court denied both arguments; the first in April and the second in June They could proceed with their case and sue the British government.

The trial never happened, however. He also Castration torture stories that his government still denied liability for the actions of the colonial administration in Kenya, and added that it would defend any claims brought by other former British colonies. There were different glass bottles for elderly women and for the young ones.

For Castration torture stories young ones, they used bottles of soda and for the others, Tusker beer bottles. So we were forced to say who gave us the oath. When the bottles were inserted, blood came out, I started bleeding. Jane and her husband have only casual employment. We all suffered the consequences: those who were in the forest, those who were in the villages, those who were in detention or in the prisons. We were going for Christmas, and we were intercepted on the way. We were all in the vehicles we were travelling in, which was stopped by a European. There were very many other men and women who were going for holidays.

All the men were ordered to go into one van, which was caged, and all the women were told to go into another van, also caged. That is where I was separated from my wife, Nziula. They were taken and we were taken and we never met until some time afterwards. We were taken backwards, on the neck here, behind the neck here. And then I was ordered to straighten my legs and here I was trampled on, slowly [by the officer].

I had a very painful yank of my testicles. It was very painful and then it got swollen. I was not taken to the detention camp again, so I was allowed to go back home. I used to get support from relatives who were sympathising with me, until I was able to have produce from my shamba [small field]. After becoming a little bit stronger, I used to make quivers and sell them, and this is how I got support.

Men were separated from women, w e were forced to enter our own van and we were taken to a detention camp. We were also taken to be tortured, and asked how many oaths we had taken ….
