HC Deb 15 April 1954 vol 526 c141W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action he is taking to encourage villagisation in the Kikuyu Reserve.

Mr. Lyttelton

Village life is not in accordance with the habits and customs of the Kikuyu. At present therefore villages are only being established by voluntary action or for security reasons where it is necessary to collect people together to enable them to be better protected, or as a penal measure in specially bad areas.
