    KENYAN VICE-PRESIDENT DANIEL MOI YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) DESCRIBED THE ASSASSINATION OF MR TOM MBOYA AS "A POLITICAL EXECUTION, MONSTROUSLY CONCEIVED" AND SAID IT APPEARED TO BE PART OF A WIDER PLAN, AIMED AT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE GOVERNMENT. BUT HE REFUSED TO NAME ANY COUNTRY AS BEING INVOLVED IN THE KILLING OF THE 38-YEAR-OLD ECONOMICS MINISTER ON JULY 5TH.

    THE VICE-PRESIDENT SAID "BOTH ASSASSINATION AND ITS CONSEQUENCE HAVE SO FAR AIMED TO CHAOS AND CIVIL DISORDER AS A STEPPING-STONE TO THE IMPOSITION OF SOME ALIEN IDEOLOGY." HE DISMISSED A BRITISH TELEVISION REPORT WHICH SUGGESTED AFRICA WAS CONNECTED WITH THE KILLING.

    POLICE ARE HOLDING THREE MEN FOR QUESTIONING IN THEIR INVESTIGATION INTO MR MBOYA'S DEATH, AND EXAMINING A WEAPON OF SIMILAR CALIBRE TO THAT USED IN THE KILLING.

    AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE MR MOI ANSWERED QUESTIONS FROM PRESSMEN, AND ALSO READ PART OF A GOVERNMENT STATEMENT:
