Mau Mau oath: outlawed 65 years ago

During the height of the Mau Mau rebellion on 18 January 1953, Sir Evelyn Baring, governor of Kenya, introduced the death penalty for anyone who organised the taking of the Mau Mau oath. The British argued that the oath was often forced upon Kikuyu people. It called for the individual's death if he failed to kill a European farmer or even his own relations when ordered to do so by the organisation. Text from SA History Online.
