Reasons why the armed resistance failed in Kenya are;

  • Kenyan societies were organized in small autonomous groups making it hard to fight the enemy
  • Disunity of communities who kept fighting one another.
  • Inferior weapons while British had sophisticated weapons like guns
  • African warriors were not well trained
  • Epidemics and natural calamities reduced the population
  • Poor leadership
  • The death of their leaders demoralized them
  • Some Africans collaborated with British against fellow Africans
