About person:Josiah Mwangi Kariuki (1929-1975)ISNI
Abstract:Josiah Mwangi Kariuki had fallen foul of Kenyatta's powerful inner circle when in March 1975 his bullet-ridden body was found in the wilds of Ngong Hills near Nairobi. His assassination sparked waves of protests that the Kenyatta government managed to quell only through a series of arrests and detentions of political leaders and radical academics. Documentary film consisting mostly of a series of historical photographs with a voice-over telling the story. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
