    MR. KENYATTA'S PARTY IS THE BIGGEST IN THE NAIROBI LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TIPPED TO BECOME KENYA'S FUTURE CHIEF MINISTER, MR. KENYATTA, IN THE THREE-HOUR TALKS, PUT FORWARD PROPOSALS FOR A SPEEDY ADVANCE TO INDEPENDENCE.

    PARTY GENERAL-SECRETARY, TOM MBOYA, WAS AT THE TALKS. AFTERWARDS, MR. MAUDLING MET EUROPEAN LEADERS WHO WARNED THAT MOST EUROPEANS WOULD LEAVE UNLESS ASSURED OF SAFEGUARDS FOR THEIR FUTURE.

    THEN LEADING HIS PARTY DELEGATES, MR. KENYATTA ADVANCED TO MEET HIS SUPPORTERS, BY NOW WILD WITH EXCITEMENT. WE BORROWED A LOUDSPEAKER FROM THE POLICE - AND TOLD THEM TO GO HOME QUIETLY.
