According to the Times of London, Barack Obama‘s Kenyan grandfather was tortured by British colonial rulers during the Mau-Mau uprising in 1949.

The third wife of Hussein Onyango Obama, Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather, Sarah Onyango,said of her husband:

“The African warders were instructed by the white soldiers to whip him every morning and evening till he confessed,

“He said they would sometimes squeeze his testicles with parallel metallic rods. They also pierced his nails and buttocks with a sharp pin, with his hands and legs tied together with his head facing down,”

“He did not like the way British soldiers and colonialists were treating Africans, especially members of the Kikuyu Central Association, who at the time were believed to be secretly taking oaths which included promises to kill the white settlers and colonialists,”

“His job as cook to a British army officer made him a useful informer for the secret oathing movement which would later form the Mau Mau rebellion,”
