Jomo KENYATTA, alias Johnstone KENYATTA: Kenyan. These files cover the early political career of the Kenyan political leader, Jomo KENYATTA, including his early years in the UK (1931-1946) and the period following his return to Kenya (1946) marked by the Mau Mau uprising. They include accounts of KENYATTA's political activity in England and Kenya and consider the possible connection between his Communist affiliations on the one hand and, on the other, the various African Rights and Independence organisations with which he was associated in Kenya (including Mau Mau). No such linkage was established and the file concludes that KENYATTA's interest in Communism and Communists was strictly proportionate to the help he thought they could give him in his Kenyan political work
