Called "the evil genius behind the Mau Mau" by the last British governor of Kenya, Senior Chief Koinange-wu-Mbiyu was in many ways instrumental in securing independence for the east African country in 1963. To some he is a demon, to others a saint. Written by his grandson, this is the first biography of a complex man who masterminded a movement that very nearly brought the British colonial empire to its knees.
