  • Description

    In Kenya, the Government formed by the minority party, the Kenya African Democratic Union (KADU), was sworn in at Government House, Nairobi, April 28th.

    Filming of the ceremony was not permitted, but afterwards the new Government ministers, led by the KADU President, Mr. Ngala, posed for cameraman with the Governor of Kenya, Sir Patrick Renison.

    The new Government is strongly opposed by the majority party, the Kenya African National Union (KANU), who refuse to co-operate in government until the nationalist leader Jomo Kenyatta is unconditionally released. He is living under restriction after being convicted of Mau Mau terrorist activities.

    Before agreeing to form a Government, KADU had joined with KANU in the political boycott pending Kenyatta's release.

    Kenya now faces not only the possibility of the KADU Government being paralysed by KANU opposition, but also serious unrest among European settler-farmer, who are bitterly dissatisfied with the British Government's liberal, African advancement policy in Kenya.
