MOI SEEMED PLEASED WITH THE TRIP WHEN HE SAW HIM ONTO THE CONCORDE A FEW HOURS AGO. HE WAS REFERRING TO “MY FRIEND THE PRESIDENT” AND “MY FRIEND SECRETARY BAKER.” THERE WERE NO GLITCHES, NO DEMONSTRATIONS, WASHINGTON PRESS WAS ON GOOD BEHAVIOUR AND APPARENTLY MOI HAD A GOOD RECEPTION FROM MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.
Denis Afande So you can see my happiness, that in the end everything went on well, very very well and of course the other functions [Photographs of Afande reception] we had at our residence, it was a really moving experience…
Nicholas Biwott Everybody was elated because the president had done so well… and when he finished there was a standing ovation in the room, they were so happy, everyone clapped, he was so eloquent and very deep in his presentation.
Maertin Minns “Not one member of the Kenyan delegation who was interviewed by Troon, or later by the Kenyan police, said they knew of any disagreement at all involving Dr Robert Ouko.”
Nicholas Biwott To me I think it was the best trip ever because we didn’t have any responsibilities other than to accompany the President and to mill around in his lounge all the time.
