The seizure of prime land in Kenya by white settlers taken during the colonial era and the land grabbing which occurred post independence by powerful black elites are responsible for abject poverty amongst indigenous and nomadic communities in Kenya today. The story of the poverty caused by land dispossession, abuse of local workers by ranch owners, harassment, intimidation and other human rights violations are told in a new documentary called 'Stolen Heritage: Land, Poverty and the Legacy of British Colonial Rule in Kenya', released by Imani Development Ltd.
