HC Deb 26 January 1955 vol 536 c38W
82. Mr. Bence

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that loyal Kikuyu are being dismissed from their employment and repatriated to the tribal reserves without notice or reason being given; and what steps he is taking to prevent this.

Mr. Hopkinson

No. I have seen a report to this effect about Y.M.C.A. hostel servants, but it is not correct. Some of the Kikuyu concerned have been found to be members of a Mau Mau committee and detained; the rest, all self-confessed members of Mau Mau, have been released on bond while the possibility of prosecution is being considered.
