His reputation with the British government was marred by his assumed involvement with the Mau Mau Rebellion. He was arrested in October 1952 and indicted on the charges of "managing and being a member" of the Mau Mau Society. The trial lasted for five months. The defense argued that the white settlers were trying to scapegoat Kenyatta and that there was no evidence tying him to the Mau Mau. Louis Leakey was brought in as translator and was accused of mistranslating because of prejudice, which seemed absurd to Louis.[citation needed] A court sentenced Kenyatta on April 8, 1953 to seven years of hard labor.[1] Contemporary opinion linked him with the Mau Mau but later research claims otherwise.

Leadership

The state of emergency was lifted in December 1960. In 1961, both successors of the former KAU party, the Kenya African National Union (KANU) and the Kenya African Democratic Union (KADU) demanded his release. On May 14, 1960, Kenyatta was elected KANU president in absentia. He was fully released on August 21, 1961. He was admitted into the Legislative Council the next year when one member handed over his seat, and contributed to the creation of a new constitution. His initial attempt to reunify KAU failed.

Kenyatta instituted a relatively peaceful land reform; on the bad side, his land policies deeply entrenched corruption within Kenya with choice parcels of land given to his relatives and friends (the so-called "Kiambu Mafia") , and Kenyatta becoming the nation's largest landowner. The Kiambu Mafia is a negative term referring to a small group of the Kikuyu tribe primarily from the Kiambu District of Kenya who benefited from KANU and Kenyatta taking power at independence. ...


To his credit he oversaw Kenya admission in the United Nations and concluded trade agreements with Milton Obote's Uganda and Julius Nyerere's Tanzania. He pursued a pro-Western, anti-Communist foreign policy.[2][3] Stability attracted foreign investment and he was an influential figure everywhere in Africa.

Kenyatta was re-elected in 1966 and the next year changed the constitution to gain extended powers. This term brought border conflicts with Somalia and more political opposition. He made the Kĩkũyũ-led KANU practically the only political party of Kenya. His security forces harassed dissidents and are suspected to be linked to several murders of opposition figures, that is Pio Gama Pinto, Tom Mboya and J.M. Kariuki[1] . Some have also tried to link him to the deaths of C.M.G. Argwings-Kodhek and Ronald Ngala, but this needs clarification as they both died in car accidents. He was re-elected again in 1974 in elections that were neither free nor fair, in which he ran alone. He died on August 22, 1978 in Mombasa and was buried on August 31 in Nairobi.

Kenyatta was a controversial figure. He is accused by his critics of having left the Kenyan republic at risk from tribal rivalries, given that his dominant Kĩkũyũ tribesmen did not like the idea of having a president from a different tribe. He was succeeded by Daniel arap Moi.

Kenyatta was initially popular with Kenyan natives in the late 1960s when he ordered all Kenyan Asians out of the country, responding to the protests of natives who felt that Asians were more advantaged than them when it came to issues such as housing, employment and education. Many of the Asians went to live in Britain, and the subsequent decline in Kenya's economic fortunes has often been blamed on Kenyetta's decision to expel all Asians from Kenya. A similar expulsion process was orchestrated by Idi Amin in Uganda at around the same time. The 1960s decade refers to the years from January 1, 1960 to December 31, 1969, inclusive. ...
