  • Description

    Tom Mboya stated at a mass meeting at Mbooni in the Wakamba country that the British Government was to blame for the political upheaval in Kenya. He stated that the present coalition government was outdated and served no purpose at all in the country. He laid the full blame for this at the dis-interest shown by Colonial Secretary, Duncan Sandys. Continuing he said that if the Election were not held in the beginning of the new year then drastic action would be taken. I asked him what was the drastic action and he refused to enlarge on this. Jomo Kenyatta. was also present at this meeting and said that he would like to see greater co-operation from all the peoples of Kenya, and said that anyone who did not want to live in the country under an African Government had better leave very very soon. Wakamba women dancers put a curse on Paul Ngei, break-away leader. They are shown in the last shot.
