Abstract

Studies on the Mau Mau struggle for land are inclined on overlooking the role played by Mau Mau veterans in acquiring land through individual contributions after Independence. In most existing literature, Kenyatta’s government was perceived to have allocated land to Mau Mau veterans and supported them financially under Nakuru District Ex- Freedom Fighters Organisation. Based on oral testimonies, secondary and Archival sources, this article examines how Mau Mau in the White Highland formed an organisation. It also considers whether they received material gains from the government after its formation. The article concludes by stressing the significance of NDEFFO in resettling over 5500 freedom fighters. In addition, the Kenyan government did not allocate those pieces of land freely since the fruits of independence did not trickle down to the Mau Mau veterans.

Key Words: Betrayal, Failed expectations, Mau Mau, NDEFFO, Land issues
