Kenya African Union (KAU) (originally called Kenya African Study Union) was a political organization formed in 1944

to articulate Kenyanmarker grievances against the Britishmarker colonial administration of the time. The KAU promptly demanded access to the Kenyan highlands, which, up to that time, had been largely owned by white settlers.Kenya African Union attempted to be more inclusive than its successor Kikuyu Central Association by avoiding tribal politics.

In late 1946, Kenyatta returned to Kenya, becoming the unrivaled leader of nationalist movement. During mid-1947, Jomo Kenyatta was elected to the presidency of the Kenya African Union.

In 1960, KAU merged with Kenya Independent Movement and the People's Congress Party to form the Kenya African National Union (KANU).


In the book Weep Not, Child by Ngugi Wa Thiong'o, the KAU is discussed in one of his chapters.
