    A CROWD OF 25,000 AFRICANS ROARED IN APPROVAL YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) WHEN PRIME MINISTER KENYATTA ASKED IN NAIROBI: "DO YOU NOW AGREE THAT EVEN IF IT MEANS WE SHOULD SHED BLOOD WE SHOULD GET RID OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVERNMENT?"
    HE WAS SPEAKING AT A RALLY AT WHICH TOME MBOYA, THE MINISTER OF JUSTICE, AND THREE OTHER MINISTERS CARRIED A SYMBOLIC COFFIN AND BURIED THE "REMAINS" OF DR. VERWOERD AND APARTHEID IN A GRAVE.

    THE VAST GATHERING CHEERED AS MR. KENYATTA SHOVELLED EARTH ON TO THE GRAVE. MR. KENYATTA SAID: "BOERS IN KENYA WILL NOT SLEEP WELL TONIGHT."
    MR. KENYATTA SAID KENYA HAD HER FREEDOM, BUT THIS WAS NOTHING IF THEIR BROTHERS WERE STILL UNDER THE "COLONIAL YOKE" IN SOUTH AFRICA.

    PORTUGUESE AND SPANISH COLONIES MUST BE FREED, AND SOUTHERN RHODESIA MUST HAVE GENUINE INDEPENDENCE UNDER A POPULARLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT. "WE WANT TO SEE BECHUANALAND, SOUTH AFRICA AND THE SOUTH-WEST MUST BE RID OF THEIR TYRANNICAL REGIMES".
