Abstract:The purpose of this paper is firstly to examine the origin and growth of African opposition to technical and religious education in Kenya, and secondly to explore the steps Africans took to - influence the type of education congenial to them. The author particularly explores the reasons underlying African opposition besides analysing African aspirations and needs. He also demonstrates how and why in the ensuing struggle Africans finally came off better organised, making it difficult for the government to deny them the kind of education they craved for. During the colonial period Africans struggled to free themselves not only from political domination, but also from their being educational, social and economic underdogs. This paper therefore deals with the educational emancipation of Africans. Notes.
