The Least We Can Do To Our Heroes Is To Support Them In Times Of Need.


Dedan Kimathi Waciuri (31 October 1920 – 18 February 1957), born Kimathi wa Waciuri in what was then British Kenya, was the senior military and spiritual leader of the Mau Mau, apprising Widely regarded as a revolutionary leader. He led the armed military struggle against the British colonial regime in Kenya in the 1950s until his capture in 1956 and execution in 1957. Kimathi is credited with leading efforts to create formal military structures within the Mau Mau, and convening a war council in 1953. He, along with Musa Mwariama and Muthoni Kirima, was one of three Field Marshals.

It is extremely sad to hear that the widow of the late Kenyan Hero and the liberator of the Kanyan Nation, Field Marshal Dedan Kimathi wa Ciuri, has been detained at the hospital because of the lack of money to pay hospital bills. This makes very hard to understand what kind of Nation Kenya is. How selfish are all those enjoying the freedom fought by Dedan, holding very high positions they wouldn’t have held had it not been for Dedan Kimathi and other freedom fighters.

The Kenyan Government should not have let this go this far. I now agree with the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga who wrote in his book and I quote; ” NOT YET UHURU”.
