Senior counsel Paul Muite wants the British Government to erect a concrete wall at Uhuru Park where all the names of those who were killed during the fight of the independence will be inscribed.
Muite who is representing thousands of Mau Mau fighters in the case they have filed in London, said that the wall should also have the names of those who were maimed and also those who were detained.
Speaking at Gataragwa area in Kieni West district where he visited the ailing Mau Mau War Veterans Association chairman Ndungu wa Gicheru, Muite said the wall should be at Uhuru Park where the Kenyans were given the independence by the British Government.
“Such a wall will be important in order for our children to learn about the history of this country in future,” said Muite.
He said the same British Government should also be forced to reveal where they took the body of ex freedom fighter field Marshall Dedan Kimathi.
Over 500 freedom fighters attended the meeting which was meant to brief them about the ongoing case in London.
The case has been filed by the Mau Mau War Veterans Association.
Muite who was also accompanied by ex- freedom fighter Gitu wa Kahengeri he also want a medical scheme started in order for the Mau Mau fighters to have quality health care.
“We also want to thank the Government for setting aside the funds of case until it is finalized. Of course we want compensation of all those who were affected from the British Government,” he added.
Ndungu urged the Mau Mau fighters to stay united and avoid disunity in the case.
He said the former freedom fighters should stay peaceful and in love.
