Vanishing Camp

  • Muthoni Likimani
Part of the Women in Society book series (WOSO)


In this chapter, I describe the suffering people endured while in the detention camps. Many Kenyan writers have written about these camps from personal experience. These camps were poorly run; the food was inadequate and treatment of the prisoners brutish. Women detainees were isolated in these camps far from any other people. They were not allowed to have visits and any words they uttered were taped; all the letters they wrote were censored.
