    Seven members of the Kenyan National Assembly arrived in Moscow last week (November 5) to start a 12-day visit - the first-ever by a Kenyan delegation since their independence from Britain in 1963.

    SYNOPSIS: Last week a delegation from Kenya was met at Moscow's Shremetyevo Airport by a welcoming committee of Russian officials.

    The Kenyans - seven members of the National Assembly - were headed by Assistant Minister for Information and Broadcasting J.Z. Kase. This is the first-ever visit to the USSR by an official Kenyan delegation, since the African country gained independence from Britain in 1963. They are remaining in Russia for twelve days.

    Later the same day, the visitors went to the Kremlin, where they were met by Madame Nasriddinova, head of the Nationalities Soviet of the USSR Supreme Soviet.

    During the stay in Moscow, the Russians and Kenyans will discuss several matters of bilateral relations - including, they hoped, the implementation of a trade agreement made in 1964 but never fully completed.
