1952 1955 Anti Dont Information Inscribed Kenya Rebel Services That Want Your


EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking anti-Mau Mau poster, published by The African Information Services in Kenya around 1955, features a caricature of a Mau Mau rebel with a menacing expression and a spear in hand. The caption reads, "THE MAU MAU WANT YOUR GUN! SEE THAT THEY DON'T GET IT." The image is a black and red lithograph against a yellow background, which adds to the sense of urgency and alarm. The Mau Mau rebellion, which began in 1952 in Kenya, was a nationalist movement aimed at ending British colonial rule. The Mau Mau believed that the only way to achieve their goal was through armed struggle. The British responded with brutal force, leading to a violent conflict that lasted for several years. This poster was likely produced to rally support for the British forces and to warn settlers and colonial administrators to be vigilant and protect their weapons. The caricatured image of the Mau Mau rebel serves to demonize the movement and to instill fear in the population. The poster is an important historical artifact that provides insight into the propaganda tactics used during the Mau Mau rebellion. It also serves as a reminder of the complex and often violent history of colonialism and decolonization in Africa.
