Wives of the Mau Mau Generals

The latest project by photographer and digital artist, Osborne Macharia.

This is the story of a special unit of 4 women in a small village within Kipipiri Forest. They were the wives to 4 of the Mau Mau generals and just like their men, they too had leadership roles. This women would be endowed in the most unique hair styles whenever a full moon was approaching. To the ordinary folk this was normal but to the villagers of Kipipiri their hair style was symbolic.  Little is known of the 4 brave women till now…..
