Mau-Mau Veterans Demands Ksh.54 Quadrillion From British Government As Compensation

A group of Mau Mau war veterans has requested Ksh. 54,802,258,784,000,000 in compensation from the British government.

The veterans are now requesting that the administration of President Ruto, led by Dr. Ngacha Kariuki, National Chairman of the Mau Mau Original Trust, expedite the payment of compensation.

Dr. Ngacha claims that he has already written to both deputy president Rigathi Gachagua and head of state William Ruto in order to ensure that the compensation will be paid now that a new government is in place.

According to Dr. Ngacha, the Ksh. 54 quadrillion in question is enough to pay off Kenya's public debt in addition to providing compensation for veterans and their families.

Dr. Ngacha claims that the veterans had long pushed for compensation, notably in 2014 and 2015 when they petitioned the previous parliament.

Dr. Ngacha asserts that Justin Muturi, the speaker of the National Assembly at the time, is one of the figures that backed the petition in 2014.
