  • Description

    Work recently started in the Kikuyu district of Kiambu on a house that the Kenya Government are providing for Jomo Kenyatta - the former 'Mau Mau' leader who has been detained for eight years.

    According to the Governor, Sir Patrick Renison, the GBP3,000 residence for Kenyatta and his family - filmed June 17 - is being built "in readiness for Mr. Kenyatta's return from Maralal to his home in Kiambu in dur course".

    On June 15, Kenyatta was permitted to receive leaders of the two main African parties - the Kenya African National Union and the Kenya African Democratic Union - at Maralal, his temporary homes. He instructed them to "press for independence this year".

    Later, the visitors said Kenyatta had agreed that the Democratic Union should continue in Government and the National Union in Opposition. Both groups said they were resolved to press for Kenyatta's immediate release.
