Harry Thuku was born in the Kambui district of Kenya; he traced his descent from one of the most influential Kibuyu families of the region. He spent 4 years at the school of the Kambui Gospel Mission, and in he received a 2-year prison sentence for forging a check.

Next Thuku became a typesetter for the Leader, a European settler newspaper. In he became a clerk-telegraph operator in the government treasury office in Nairobi. At this time the first African organizations were being formed to defend African interests against the European rulers of Kenya.

One of the first, the Kikuyu Association, was a nonmilitant group with ties to the government and missions; its main concern was the preservation of African-owned land. During Thuku served as its secretary. It drew members from many tribal groups, but because of its location most of the members were Kikuyu. Thuku played an important role because of his education and government position. This event was met by an intensive African protest which resulted in a demonstration culminating in violence.

Thuku was then deported to remote Kismayu. The East African Association then declined, but those interested in African rights remained active.

Thuku remained in their thoughts as a primary leader. But dissension arose among the leaders of the association, and the organization split into factions, with Thuku eventually founding his own group, the Kikuyu Provincial Association, devoted to legal, nonmilitant protest. This turn to moderation caused a permanent split between Thuku and the rising generation of the future leaders of Kenya. From this period on Thuku played no important role in the evolution of African nationalism within his country.
