About Ukombozi Library

Ukombozi Library was established in 2017 by progressive information and social justice activists to bring to light thousands of books, publications and other memorabilia archives that inspired and fueled the struggles for social justice and democracy in Kenya. The library is registered as a society under the Progressive African Library and Information Activists (PALIAct)

The library started with the collection of books maintained by Nazmi Durrani whose library became a key source of information for the underground December Twelve Movement (DTM). Vita Books has played a key role in setting up and maintaining the Library and donates all its publications to the Library as well as to community groups. Mwakenya- December Twelve Movement (DTM) and Mau Mau Research Centre (MMRC) are other supporting organisations.

The initial collection of over 1,000 books and publications housed in the library are the rare books and publications read and shared by activists associated with the underground revolutionary movements in Kenya such as December Twelve Movement (DTM) and MWAKENYA.

Presentely, Ukombozi Library has become a hub and a meeting place for reading, sharing, discussing and reflecting on progressive books, publications, ideas, among other engagements by college students and social movements activists from the older and younger generation that are actively engaged in the struggles for social justice in Kenya and elsewhere in the region and globally.
