{{cquote|Henderson might have walked from the fevered pages of a [[Graham Greene]] novel. He was an interrogator of the [[Mau Mau]] during colonial rule in Kenya in the bitter struggle for independence. So brutally efficient were his methods that, on obtaining independence for Kenya, [[Jomo Kenyatta]] tried to re-engage him in his own security apparatus. So notorious was Henderson that a demonstration was mounted by his victims and the whole affair became so scandalous that Kenyatta was forced to deport him. Via [[Ian Smith]]'s [[Rhodesia]], he ended up as the right hand man of the [[Al-Khalifa]].
