Britain which heavily relies on Kenyan tea could suffer a short supply of the commodity after the Kericho County governor Mr Paul Chepkwony threatened to seize tea farms owned by British settlers as per an article by Daily Mail.
According to the UK publication, the governor is demanding £15 billion from the British Government for farmland in Kericho County he claims the British stole in the 1930s. The land belonged to the Talai clan.
He stated that if Britain does not admit that the land was stolen and they fail to pay up the reparations he will seize the land forcefully and this could affect the tea supply in Britain.
Some people from the Talai clan have also demanded the United Nations investigate on the land matter.
More than 10,000 people have signed the official complaint accusing the UK government of failing to reconcile the colonial injustice. According to their lawyer, a UN special rapporteur will help them mediate a settlement.
This is one of the many compensation claims across all the British former colonies. Most appeals have failed apart from the 2013 case when the UK government paid reparations to the victims of the bloody crackdown on the 1950s Mau Mau rebellion against colonial rule in Kenya.
