Newly released documents shed light on Britain's role in Mau Mau uprising in Kenya
Secret files from the era of British colonial rule have been released by the British government, one year after they came to light in a High Court challenge to have them disclosed. The secret documents, originally thought to be lost, cover controversial issues, such as the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya. A legal challenge by four Kenyans who are seeking to bring the British government to justice was pivotal in bringing about the release of these documents. RFI speaks to Daniel Leader, a lawyer who's been trying to use some of these documents to force the British government to acknowledge wrongdoing in Kenya.
