  • Description

    The Governor of Kenya, Sir Patrick Renison, officially announced in Nairobi Apr 18 that KADU - the Kenya African Democratic Union - had agreed to take part in the formation of a Government. This decision followed conversations in London between the leader of KADU, Mr Ronald Ngala, and the British Colonial Secretary, Mr Macleod.

    Sir Patrick, accompanied by Mr Ngala and other members of his Party, called a press conference at Government House at 10 p.m. to announce the agreement.

    He revealed that the Kenya Government will "now begin to build a house for Mr Jomo Kenyatta and his family on a site to be agreed in Kiambu district in readiness for Mr Kenyatta's return from Maralal to his home in Kiambu in due course".

    A number of other matters including economic problems were referred to in the statement. Government statements on these were expected shortly.

    KADU's agreement to cooperate in forming a Government resolves the deadlock on the question that had lasted for seven weeks.
