Muigwithania was the newspaper of the Kikuyu Central Association, under the leadership of future Kenyan president Jomo Kenyatta. It was an important organ for Kenyatta and others in which to articulate their growing sense of grievance against colonial rule and pan-Africanism. This collection is of photocopies in the Kenyan National Archives of 11 issues of the newspaper (in the original Kikuyu and in English translation) and of a twelfth in English only from 1928 to 1929, as well as correspondence about the newspaper between the District Commissioner, Machakos and Superintendent of Police.
