    Rishi Sunak’s grandfather, Ramdas Sunak, taught guerrilla techniques to Kenyan fighters during the Mau Mau rebellion against British rule in the 1950s. Ramdas moved from Punjab to Nairobi as a young man and worked as a clerk and administrator in the finance and justice departments of the colonial government. He was also a trained accountant and affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

    Ramdas helped the Kenyan fighters through his childhood friend Makhan Singh, who was a trade unionist and sympathizer of the Mau Mau rebels. Ramdas left Kenya when Indians were subjected to racism following its independence and moved to the UK in 1971.

    Recently, the Sunak administration paid £20 million compensation to 5,000 elderly Kenyans who were subjected to abuse and war crimes by the British rulers during the uprising. Ramdas Sunak’s involvement in training the Kenyan fighters was reported in The Mail on Sunday.

    Ramdas Sunak passed away in 1980, the year Rishi Sunak was born. In his final years, he helped set up the Vedic Society Hindu Temple in Southampton. A video of Rishi Sunak making chapatis in the temple’s kitchen went viral when he campaigned for UK PM and Conservative Party chief’s position in 2019.
