General Information:

Nicholls - The witty and rather wicked Daphne Moore (her private comments on others were always funny but rather cruel - she said the wife of Sidney Fazan, PC at Kisumu, always reminded her of a wicker wastepaper basket which had not been emptied) threw herself with verve into overseeing all women's organisations, though she was sorely tried by infighting and the actions of Mrs A. Turner. She also tried to curb in Government House the 'blatant extravagances' introduced by the Brooke-Pophams.
