The vice President Jaramogi Odinga Oginga yesterday paid a one day official visit to Embu and Meru districts, in the Eastern Provinces. On his arrival he was greeted by the Provincial commissioner and other government officials before leaving for National Union Office. Jaramogi also had time to see around, he arrived at the Kanu office, where he was cheered by waiting crowds of people.
Dancers were there to entertain the Vice-President who soon joined in.
In a short speech, Jaramogi warned his listeners to be aware of corruption and rumour mongers, who, he said wanted to spoil the African government. But the dancers were still determined to entertain him more, before he left for the Provincial Governor's office. Later he signed the visitor's book. At the Provincial Commissioner's office Jaramogi was introduced to government officials, including District commissioners and chiefs. He leaves the house of the Provincial commissioner and arrives at the Embu-Meru boundary where he shakes hands with the District officers. Mr. Odinga also left for the home of the Assistant Minister for Information, Mr. Mjeru.
Dancers are still going strong while other people who were anxious to have a look at the Vice President watched from the top of trees. Mr. Angaine, the Minister for Lands and Settlements was present during the tour of the Vice-President. Jaramogi said people must not allowed themselves to be bought with money. He warned that they must not be shortsighted, but should always be on the alert to guide the Kenya nation against trouble makers and those who were still serving their old colonial masters. Later he was presented with a sheep. A last amusement and Jaramogi joints the dancers. Before he left he said goodbye to the people and the Assistant minister for Information Mr. Njeru.
