Waiyaki Wa Hinga, was an Agikuyu nation leader and Kenyan anti-colonial leader who was chief of Dagoretti. Waiyaki signed a treaty with Frederick Lugard of the Imperial British East Africa Company (IBEAC). However, having been subject to considerable "harassment" by the British, Waiyaki burnt down Lugard's fort in 1890. Waiyaki was finally captured two years later and killed.[1]
