Mau Mau veterans eye fresh compensation from Britain

22 November 2013, 09:11

Nairobi - Mau Mau veterans who were excluded from the KES 2.6 billion payout from the British Government for atrocities committed during the colonial period have started to register for fresh claims.

The registration which was ordered last month by a British High Court is being led by a British firm and targets 8,000 veterans.

The KES 2.6 billion compensation only benefited 5,228 people. Britain, through its High Commissioner to Kenya Dr. Christian Turner said the compensation was meant for personal injury to the veterans, Daily Nation reports.

Earlier on, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) had decided to conduct an audit of the veterans who were to benefit from the compensation.

The LSK Secretary Apollo Mboya had said that the audit would prevent fraud to the settlement meant for ex- Mau Mau veterans who were victims of torture by the colonialists.

According to Mboya, LSK had approached Ernst & Young audit firm to look at the possibility of undertaking identity verification for the surviving Mau Mau victims of torture, those who are deceased and the legal estate of the deceased.
