  • Description

    ELEVEN BRITISH SUBJECTS ARRESTED IN KENYA ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT (5 JULY) AND DECLARED PROHIBITED IMMIGRANTS WERE PUT ABOARD AN AIRCRAFT FOR LONDON IN NAIROBI TODAY (FRIDAY). AS THEY WERE HUSTLED THROUGH THE AIRPORT BUILDING, THEY COMPLAINED BITTERLY ABOUT THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY HAD BEEN DETAINED.

    THE IMMIGRANTS ... FIVE WHITE SETTLERS AND SIX ASIANS ... HAD BEEN ACCUSED BY VICE PRESIDENT DANIEL MOI OF BEING ANTI-AFRICAN AND RACIST. A SEVENTH ASIAN DUE TO BE DEPORTED WAS UNWELL AND REMAINED IN NAIROBI.

    THE MEN SAW THEIR FAMILIES AT THE AIRPORT FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THEY HAD BEEN DETAINED. THEY WERE HURRIED THROUGH THE BUILDING, UNABLE TO TALK WITH THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN. BUT THEY DID MANAGE TO TELL REPORTERS THAT THE CONDITIONS IN THE CAMP IN WHICH THEY WERE DETAINED WERE "AWFUL", AND TO PROTEST THEIR INNOCENCE.

    THE KENYAN GOVERNMENT ALLEGED THAT THE MEN HELD MOCK PARLIAMENTS AND NAMED CATTLE AFTER KENYAN LEADERS. THE DEPORTEES REJECTED THESE CHARGES, SAYING THEY WERE LIES.
