  • Description

    MOST STRIKE PICKETS BEAR THEIR PLACARDS AND DEMANDS WITH SOME SOLEMNITY. IN KENYA, DANCING - SOMEWHAT HILARIOUS - COMES FIRST, OUTSIDE THE CLOSED WORK PLACE.

    THE AFRICANS ON THIS STRIKE BELONG TO KANU, THE PARTY OF MINISTER OF STATE KENYATTA. THEY ARE STAGING THEIR DANCE PICKET OUTSIDE THE BREWERY WHERE THEY NORMALLY WORK. A TOM-TOM, A TRIANGLE AND A GUITAR, PROVIDE THE MUSIC.

    SOME CONCERN IS BEING FELT IN AN AROUND NAIROBI WHERE TOMORROW (SATURDAY) IT IS EXPECTED THE REMAINING STOCKS OF BEER IN HOTELS, BARS AND STORES WILL BE EXHAUSTED.

    THE STRIKERS - ALL AFRICAN EMPLOYEES - ARE OUT AT THE TWO MAIN BREWERIES. IT'S THE FIRST TIME THE BREWERIES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY A STRIKE - THEY HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED THE BEST EMPLOYERS IN KENYA.

    THE MEN'S UNIONS ARE DEMANDING A GBP17 SHILLING - MINIMUM A MONTH FOR THE LOWEST PAID BREWERY MEN - ALMOST A 100 PER CENT RISE. AND THEY SAY THEIR MEMBERS WILL STAY OUT UNTIL THEIR DEMANDS ARE MET TO THE LETTER.
