Compensate the families of the Mau Mau's victims too!

So the UK Government are to pay out several million pounds in compensation to members of the Mau Mau, the infamous Kenyan terrorist group guilty of the mutilation, maiming, raping and murdering of so many victims in the 1950s. The payouts are because their 'Yuman Rights' were violated by the British Colonial regime. Now, victims are victims, whichever the side they are on, and torture, maiming and the like are totally unacceptable in a civilized society. Those who perpetrate it should be brought to justice. I see no real problem with compensating the victims of such crimes, provided that it is universal, and not restricted to one side of a conflict only. However, what about the Mau Mau compensating their victims as well.

After all, surely what's good for the goose is good for the gander!
