The global movement for reparations condemns colonialism as a crime and demands redress for historic injustices. In January 2020, MBC included a panel on reparations in our Changing the Narrative event at The Africa Centre. Through this panel, we explored continued claims for reparations for colonial exploitation and contemporary manifestations of the colonial dynamic in the corporate world.

The panel comprised Professor Paul Chepkwony – Governor for Kericho County, Kenya; Professor Chege Githiora – SOAS Lecturer in Swahili, and Gĩkũyũ translator during the Mau Mau court case in London; Tom Wills – Traidcraft Exchange; and was chaired by Nikita Bernardi – Kenyan-Italian communications specialist.
