The British and Kenyan governments have had a 50-year agreement that British soldiers could train in Kenya. During that time, it is claimed, women were raped and many tribesmen were injured or killed during British training maneuvers.


The British government has announced it will pay $7 million to 220 Kenyan tribesmen who were victims of live ordnance left behind by British troops.
