Kenya and Abardare ranges among other central Kenya "mountains" in an attempt to eliminate all the freedom fighters by the British government.
The main reasons why the bombarded areas where a target by the British government was that it was quite thick and mau mau fighters were engaging in guerilla warfare. Also know-how of the terrains by the geurillas made the areas the best points of engagement and or attack.
