    AFTER MORE THAN A WEEK OF TENSION - AND MUTINY BY SOME ARMY ELEMENTS - KENYA LIFE IS RETURNING TO NORMAL.

    THE OPEN AIR CAFES ON PAVEMENTS ARE BEING PATRONISED AGAIN AND THE SHOPPERS ARE OUT AT THE SALES HUNTING FOR BARGAINS.

    MUTINEERS AT KENYA'S LANET CAMP HAVE BEEN DISARMED BY BRITISH TROOPS, WHO WERE IN A CAMP NEARBY.

    ABOUT 500 AFRICANS OF THE KENYA RIFLES WERE ROUNDED UP BUT ABOUT 200 WERE RELEASED AFTER IT WAS ESTABLISHED THEY TOOK NO PART IN THE MUTINY.

    AMONG THE AFRICAN TROOPS WHICH STAYED LOYAL WERE THOSE OF THE ARMY'S THIRD BATTALION STATIONED AT A CAMP NEAR NAIROBI. IT WAS AT THEIR CAMP THAT YESTERDAY (MONDAY) THAT LIEUTENANT COLONEL JACKSON MULINGE WAS APPOINTED COMMANDER OF THE BATTALION. HE BECOMES THE FIRST AFRICAN OFFICER TO COMMAND A BATTALION IN KENYA.

    ABOUT 700 BRITISH TROOPS - THE 41st MARINE COMMANDO UNIT - WERE AIRLIFTED AT THE WEEKEND FROM BRITAIN TO NAIROBI AND AFTER A SHORT SHARP ACTION ARE NOW SETTLING DOWN TO LIFE IN THE SUN. THERE'S EQUIPMENT TO BE MAINTAINED, AND PATROLS TO BE CARRIED OUT - BUT DOMESTIC CHORES - SUCH AS WASHING OF CLOTHES - ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
