Background: Crime wave in Kenya: the British Parliamentary Under Secretary for Colonial Affairs, Mr. Hugh Frazer, and Mr. A. N. Galsworthy, the Assistant Under Secretary, flew into Nairobi May 18 for a seven-day visit to Kenya. Their purpose is to inspect the problems of the country and to hold talks with European and African formers on the questions of violence and subversion in the Rift Valley, Nyanza and the Central Provinces.
Mr. Frazer and his colleague were greeted on arrival by Mr. Griffiths-Jones, Solicitor General, on behalf of the Governor, and Mr. Blundell, the leader of the New Kenya Party. At a press conference Mr. Frazer told reporters that he also hoped to have discussions with members of the newly formed Government.
In view of recent outbreaks of violence in Kenya - two European women were murdered recently - white farmers have been checking their existing defences and many have considered sending their wives and families either to Nairobi or out of Kenya altogether.
