  • Description

    Ronald Ngala, President of the Kenya minority party KADU (Kenya African Democratic Union), and his vice-President Mr M. Muldro,flew into Nairobi Airport Mar 8 after visiting convicted 'Mau-Mau' leader Jomo Kenyatta at the remote village of Lodwar in the Northern Province.

    Both KADU and their powerful rival party KANU(Kenya African National Union), were given permission to visit Kenyatta by the Governor of Kenya, Sir Patrick Renison. A Government plane was also placed at their disposal.

    But the political deadlock continued: KANU's President, Mr Gichuru, refused to send representatives to see Kenyatta on Sir Patrick's terms. His party insists on the prompt and unconditional release of the exiled leader.

    On his return from Lodwar, Mr Ngala stated that Kenyatta had at no time indicated he wished to be the Chief Minister of Kenya. It was reported that if Mr Ngala's impression is correct, it would possibly help break the deadlock in the political situation following KANU's refusal to join the Government until Kenyatta is released and made Chief Minister.

    Mr Ngala said his party found Jomo Kenyatta mentally and physically fit enough to take part in the political leadership.
