This is a book on political repression in Kenya under colonial and post-colonial rule, from 1902 when Kenya's present borders were settled, to 2002 when the party of independence, KANU, lost its forty -year hold on power. The book undertakes to advance knowledge about political repression of political parties in Africa, through an analysis of the linkages between the colonial and post colonial states, ethnicity, and social classes in formation, consolidation, and conflict in Kenya to describe and explain the patterns, variability and scope of political repression. Through a review of the colonial regime (1902-1962), the subsequent Kenyatta (1963-1978), and Moi (1978-2002) eras, this book explores how and why avenues of popular expression, dissent and political action were systematically closed off and subverted by increasingly narrow, politically insecure, but still dominant ethnic and political classes. The book should be of interest to political scientists, economists, human rights lawyers and social activists and those interested in contemporary political and social history of African states.
