The Forty Group was a Kenyan society or organization of the mid-twentieth century constituted primarily of members of the Kenya African Union in their 40s who joined with the aim of using violence to make their voice heard. The name is a translation of the Kĩkũyũ phrase Kiama kia 40, which means The Young Men of 40. The organization was also called Anake a 40.
The organization consisted mainly of men fresh from service in World War II.
