FICTIONAL STORY REVOLVING AROUND HE MAU MAU, GUERILLA FIGHTERS DURING THE STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE.
MACICIOKIKUYU WORD FOR SPECTACLES/
 
THIS IS MY FIRST OF MANY FICTIONAL STORIES TO COME. IT REVOLVES AROUND THE MAU MAU (GUERILLA FIGHTERS DURING KENYA'S STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE)
 
RUMOUR HAS IT THAT WITHIN THE MAU MAU FIGHTERS WAS A SPECIAL UNIT OF 5 OPTICIANS WHO HAND CRAFTED SPECIAL MADE SPECTACLES THAT THEY USED TO SPOT THE ENEMY AT NIGHT.
 
LITTLE IS KNOWN ABOUT THEM.....TILL NOW. THIS IS THEIR STORY.
 
CONCEPT/PHOTOGRAPHY: OSBORNE MACHARIA
COSTUME & SPECTACLE DESIGN: KEVO ABBRA (I OWE THIS GUYS ALOT)
ASSISTANTS: VICTOR NDALO & YONAS TADESSE 
2ND COMMANDER KIGOTHO: THE LAST MAN STANDING AND SURVIVOR FROM HIS PREVIOUS BATTALION. HE'S ALWAYS AT THE BACK OF THE GROUP WITH HIS SPECIAL DESIGNED SPECS THAT SPOT THE ENEMY FROM BEHIND.
KIMANI 'NINJA' NGANGA: HANDS ON FIGHTER AND FRONT MAN IN THE PACK. HE'S A MASTER TRACKER AND ATTRIBUTES HIS LEVEL OF HIGH SENSES TO THE WIRE DISH ON HIS JACKET.
NYAKUNDI: COMMUNCATIONS EXPERT AND VOICE IMITATOR, HE USES THE KNOBS ATTACHED TO THE MOUTH PIECE ON HIS SPECS TO IMITATE  5 DIFFERENT ANIMALS USING CODE LANGUAGE.
KARANJA 'THE MOLE' JERE: NORMALLY OPERATES UNDERGROUND WITH HIS MODIFIED UNDERGROUND BREATHING SUITE. HIS HAIR IS DESIGNED TO APPEAR LIKE A RODENT BURROWING THROUGH THE SOIL AND HE'S SPACTACLES ARE TELESCOPIC ABLE TO SEE CLOSE TO 1KM AWAY.
THE LEGENDARY GROUP SHOT :)
