Man Hunt in KenyaeBook - 2016
The rise of one African leader would bring the Mau Mau movement to an end. This is the exciting story of the great MAN HUNT IN KENYA. An extraordinary man roamed the vast forests and craggy foothills of Kenya's Aberdare plateau. He was a man of animal instincts and animal cunning. He was a Bible-reading fanatic who served the god Ngai. He was an orator whose vitriolic rhetoric had moved thousands to do as he wished. He had killed, plundered, and tortured his way to the head of a movement which had terrorized an entire country. He was Kimathi-the Kikuyu boy who became the most feared and despised leader of the Mau Mau movement. Senior Police Superintendent Ian Henderson's hunt for Kimathi lasted one full year. It was a year of brutal hardship and personal sacrifice spent in the tangled Aberdare wilderness-an untracked area as hazardous and difficult as any in Africa. To read of Ian Henderson's search is to share with him the heartbreaking setbacks, the terror-filled months of climbing, cutting, clawing, sifting through a country few white men had penetrated before. MAN HUNT IN KENYA tells, in gripping detail, the last chapter in the Mau Mau story.
