  • Description

    President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia arrived in Nairobi on Saturday (13 December) at the start of a three day official visit to kenya.

    He was met at the airport by Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta and members of the kenyan cabinet.

    Shortly after the airport ceremony, President Kaunda went to President Kenyatta's home at Gatundu, thirty miles from Nairobi, for the start of meetings on Rhodesia and Angola.

    The meetings were expected to be informal, with the formal part of discussions between the two Presidents taking place the next day of State House.

    Sunday evening was left free of engagements for the Zambian party but it was considered possible that the talks might resume then if necessary.

    It was President Kaunda's first official visit to Kenya in seven years, the last being in May 1968.

    Since then, he has only made a stop-over visit on his way to Addis Ababa for the summit conference of the Organisation of African Unity in 1971.

    Kenya officials have described this visit as part of normal inter-African consultation, but informed sources indicate that President Kaunda is anxious to receive Kenya's support for his Angola stand before the OAU ministerial meeting on Angola to be held in Addis Ababa next week.
