  • Description

    In ever increasing numbers African District Commissioners and District Officers are replacing European officials here.Many of these men know only their own comparatively small district and tribe and have but the vaguest notion of what Kenya is like as a whole.

    Today the R.A.F.played a part in showing these future D.O.'s and D.C.'s a broader view of the country - from the air.39 African administrators-to-be gathered at Nairobi from where a Beverly took them on a cross-country flight over the fertile Kikuyu agricultural lands, the majestic Aberdare mountain range and forest (scene of so much activity during the Mau Mau) and on to the semi desert of the Northern Frontier.On this trajectory regions including Kikuyu, Meru, Embu, Turkhana and (Kenya) Somali tribes were covered.

    The party lunched under the trees at lodwar (desert settlement where Jomo Kenyatta was detained for several years prior to his release) before returning to Nairobi.
