Jomo Kenyatta, the supposed Mau Mau leader, was convicted and sentenced to seven years in jail (through the use of false testimony) in Kenya…

Kenyatta and five others were detained at Lodwar, a particularly remote desert army post. Kenyatta’s arrest came shortly after the Lari massacre that happened on 26 March 1953 where close to 100 people were killed and scores of others injured.
