Last white man standing

Justin Webster, Denmark, 2010

52 min.DK/Documentary

Tom Cholmondeley, heir to one of the largest estates in Kenya and the Lord Delamere title, stands accused of murder in Nairobi. He's on trial charged with murdering a black poacher, Robert Njoya, on his land. If convicted of murder, Cholmondeley could hang. Serah Njoya, the widow with four children, wants her husband's killer brought to justice. She lives on the edge of the Delamere estate.
The case has received a lot of attention. It's not only because there is a white Eton-educated aristocrat in the dock but because of the tensions caused by unequal land ownership and the fact that it's not the first time Tom Cholmondeley finds himself on trial. In April 2005 he shot and killed a Masai game warden, also on his land.
