Kenya's Nubians : then and now
Note:
"Nubians were conscripted from the Sudan by the British and brought to Kenya and Uganda at the end of the 19th century as conscripts to help in its imperial mission of the annexation of Kenya and Uganda and to fight the major world wars on its behalf. However, even before the second great war of the 20th century, the usefulness of the Nubians to Britain had been expended. But the British both rejected the request of Nubians to return to their ancestral home (still under British control) and failed to make suitable arrangements for their continued stay in Kenya. At independence, their status and livelihood were left, at best, ambiguous, with no guarantee of citizenship or a place in the future Kenya ... It is therefore no surprise that the Nubians have not fared well in independent Kenya"--P. 5.
