Event Details

The Mau Mau Research Center (MMRC), together with Prof. Maina Kinyatti, are pleased to invite you to the relaunch of the book titled “Dedan Kimathi Speaks – We will fight to the Last Man”. The book is about the letters and important papers written by Dedan Kimathi, the leader of the Mau Mau Revolutionary Movement. They have been retyped and edited for clarity by Maina Kinyatti; they make startlingly clear the movement’s own perspectives on its struggle and difficulties, the relatively advanced nature of it goals as a national liberation movement, and its radical vision of a liberated Kenyan society.

The launch is also part of the 59th Anniversary of the execution of Field Marshal Dedan Kimathi by the colonial government for his dedication and commitment to the liberation of the Kenyan people.

The launch will be held at the Kenya National Theatre – Ukumbi Mdogo on 18th February 2016 (Kimathi Day) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Chief Guest will be The Honorable Justice, Dr. Willy Mutunga, Chief Justice of Kenya.
