Was the fight for independence in Kenya a lost cause?

First, the new African government did not recognize the efforts and the cause of those gallant sons and daughters who had fought for independence. The Mau Mau movement remained banned and labeled as a terrorist group until 2003 when the ban was lifted. Many of the freedom fighters remained in the concentration camps many years after and some still do to date. These camps are still mar the landscape of Kiambu County, the richest in the country. Families living in these camps suffer even worse living conditions and indignity under the watch of successive African governments.
