  • Description

    "GOLF", SAID THE KENYA MINISTER OF LABOUR, "IS A CULTURE OF A REMOTE TRIBE FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM WHICH HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD."
    NOW WHETHER THE SCOTTISH FOUNDERS OF THIS GAME WOULD CALL THEMSELVES REMOTE TRIBESMEN IS NOT CERTAIN, BUT ONE THING IS CERTAIN: GOLF HAS FOUND ITS WAY TO ALL FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD -- KENYA INCLUDED.

    AND YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) AFRICANS JOINED EUROPEANS FOR A GAME AT THE KIAMBU GOLF CLUB, JUST OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL NAIROBI. AMONG THE PLAYERS WAS THE LABOUR MINISTER HIMSELF, MR. MWENDWA.

    SEVERAL OF THE AFRICANS WERE FORMER CADDIES AT THE CLUB, WHERE WATCHING THE EUROPEANS PLAY BECAME INTERESTED THEMSELVES TO THE EXTENT OF CLEARING NEIGHBOURING LAND TO PLAY ON.

    THE EUROPEANS, HEARING OF THEIR KEENESS, INVITED THEM TO PLAY WITH THEM AT KIAMBU. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF MULTI-RACIAL CO-OPERATION IN KENYA.
