This small 3-bedroom house in the Mt. Kenya region is more like a shrine. It was owned by the first person that the British Colonial Government arrested and detained - on April 12, 1952 - for political activities of the world-famous Mau Mau freedom fighters. He was Kihu Mbutu, father of Mwai Kihu.
When he was released - on January 31, 1959 - he became a successful smallholder coffee farmer. He died at 101 on September 1, 2008. He built this house in 1978. The coffee he planted still thrives.
