INTRODUCTION: The British chairman of the Geneva peace conference on Rhodesia, Mr. Ivor Richard, is continuing his African tour for further talks in his efforts to find a peaceful solution to the problem. Mr. Richard was in Nairobi, Kenya, for a weekend of what he termed rest and reflection - but during his visit he launched an uncharacteristically sharp attack on Rhodesian Foreign Minister Pieter van der Byl, who's played a major role in the conference so far.
SYNOPSIS: On Saturday (8 January) Mr. Richard was at the Kenyan Foreign Ministry for talks with Foreign Minister, Dr. Munyua Waiyaki. He briefed Dr. Waiyaki on his African tour, during which he has had talks with the so-called "front line" black African leaders, and Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith and South African leader Mr. John Vorster. Later, at the British High Commission in Nairobi, Mr. Richard repeated his believe that a peaceful settlement to the problem was still possible.
